The Book of Memory
Convicted of murder, Memory is an albino woman suffering at a prison in Harare – Chikurubi Maximum Security Prison. She has been convicted of murder and is requested to document what she recalls in writing. As she tells her story, it is revealed that Memory is convicted of the murder of Lloyd Hendricks. She feels no remorse for the death of this man. The questions that she answers are who was this man? Why was she unapologetic for his death? Petina pens this work of literature, blending humor, the past and the present in this tale of obsession, love and the intricacy of memory.
