A novel as unique as its author name, NoViolet Bulawayo's We Need New Names enables us to see Zimbabwe and our own country through the inquisitive eyes of a ten-year-old girl. The Africa that she inhabits seems as unfamiliar to us as her buddies named Bastard and Godknows, but the America to which she emigrates has a strangeness that immigrants know better than the rest of us. This tale of assimilation and identity has a rawness that somehow retains its charm. Quite simply unforgettable.
