The Maestro, The Magistrate & The Mathematician

by Tendai Huchu - £8.99  Parthian Books (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781910409985 | ISBN 10: 1910409987

Three very different men struggle with thoughts of belonging, loss, identity and love as they attempt to find a place for themselves in Britain.
 
The Magistrate tries to create new memories and roots, fusing a wandering exploration of Edinburgh with music. The Maestro, a depressed, quixotic character, sinks out of the real world into the fantastic world of literature. The Mathematician, full of youth, follows a carefree, hedonistic lifestyle, until their three universes collide.
 
In this carefully crafted, multi- layered novel, Tendai Huchu, with his inimitable humour, reveals much about the Zimbabwe story as he draws the reader deep into the lives of the three main characters.
