Kharis Publishing Releases Diaspora Dreams
Diaspora Dreams (ISBN: 978-1637460290) by Andrew Chatora, a haunting light on the all-encompassing nature of racial prejudice and its minutiae permutations.
By: Kharis Publishing, an imprint of Kharis Media LLC
Diaspora Dreams is Andrew Chatora's debut novella. It details the life and struggles of Kundai Mafirakureva, a Zimbabwean immigrant living in the United Kingdom. When Kundai departs a failing Zimbabwe for the greener pastures of England, he is convinced that his luck will immediately change. Yet what he finds in the UK convinces him that all that glitters is not always gold.
Chatora takes us on a journey that acquaints us with Thames Valley, where Kundai must negotiate his place and his voice in a world where African men are not welcome. Set against the backdrop of petty classroom squabbles that constantly remind Kundai of his lower status as an immigrant, Diaspora Dreams exposes the tensions of working in the diaspora. The pressures of Britain also bear down on Kundai's family and relationships, threatening, in the words of du Bois, to "tear his soul asunder."
Diaspora Dreams is published by Kharis Publishing and is now available wherever books are sold, including Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/
