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.
