It is just after nine o'clock in the morning. Gidza will die in exactly forty-three minutes and thirteen seconds.
'Rotten Row' is the Criminal Division of Harare, and the courts and the unfortunates who pass through them are the subjects of this mesmerising collection of stories. In these portraits of lives aching for meaning and redemption, Petina Gappah crosses the barriers of class, race, gender and sexual politics in contemporary Zimbabwe, to explore the causes and effects of crime and the nature of justice.

Intelligent, witty and incisive. Source: The Times

Does for Harare now what Dickens did for Victorian London, with lethal comic relish and rage. Author: Helen Simpson Source: Observer 'Books of the Year'

Stories that throb with life and meaning. Source: Stylist

Gappah's narratives have a resilient lightness and bounce. Author: Phil Baker Source: Sunday Times

Gappah's writing is intelligent, witty and incisive. Author: Kate Saunders Source: The Times
