Bones is a poetic novel about the guerilla fight for freedom in Zimbabwe, but unlike a conventional novel, all the action is interior monologues — some by specific characters, others by representatives of certain types produced by colonial history, or by spirits. The story involves a mother’s love, and a lover’s yearning, for a young man who has joined the freedom fighters. Hove captures the ambivalence and conflicts of loyalties in the attitude of the peasants towards the guerillas, and underscores the state’s indifference to the lives of ordinary people.
