For Honour & Other Stories

Love on Trial, a short story from For Honour & Other Stories has been short listed for the prestigious Caine Prize - known as 'The African Booker" - for 2012!

In the tradition of short-story greats like Chekhov and Grace Paley, Malawian writer S.O. Kenani examines weighty subjects with a light touch.

Delicately balancing humour and pathos, he introduces us to the inhabitants of Chipiri, a village where everything begins under the kachere tree. From Mr Kachingwe, willing to enthral you with his outrageous views on homosexuality for the price of a tot, and Zione, following her dream of becoming an au pair in Europe; to Mark who accidentally lands in a civil war in ‘Nileland’ during a plane crash, and Sister Fire arriving to adopt a Malawian child, these characters will delight and captivate you.

Though many leave the village, they always return. Some stay; others share their stories of hardship and success before heading off on another adventure.
