Dambudzo Marechera: The life and times of an African writer

Helon Habila, one of my favorite Nigerian writers, has a profound essay on Dambudzo Marechera, one of very powerful African writers of the late 20th century. I regard Marechera highly, second only to Yvonne Vera, also from Zimbabwe.
Habila provides background, analytical information about Dambuzdo the man. It helped me understand his novella, House of Hunger.
