"When a Crocodile Eats the Sun: A Memoir of Africa" by Peter Godwin will be our book for the November/December meeting. Thanks to Lou for suggesting it!
"When a Crocodile Eats the Sun" is a stirring memoir of the disintegration of a family set against the collapse of a country. After his father's heart attack, Peter Godwin begins making regular trips back to Zimbabwe where he was born and where his parents still live. As the country descends into chaos under the control of Robert Mugabe, Godwin discovers a secret that explains why his parents refuse to leave as Zimbabwe falls apart around them.
