Glory by NoViolet Bulawayo

NoViolet Bulawayo became the first black African woman – and first Zimbabwean – to be shortlisted for the Booker Prize, for her 2013 debut, We Need New Names. Nine years later, Glory is an Orwell-inspired fable set in the animal kingdom of Jidada, which satirises the 2017 coup that toppled Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe (Bulawayo has explained that Glory began its life as a non-fiction account of this history). As a fierce but comedic allegory, Glory can be seen as a companion piece to Wole Soyinka’s 2021 satire of Nigerian society, Chronicles from the Land of the Happiest People on Earth. “By aiming the long, piercing gaze of this metaphor at the aftereffects of European imperialism in Africa, Bulawayo is really out-Orwelling Orwell,” writes the New York Times.

Motherly Love Can Get Dark

I t’s an eternal middle-aged anxiety: “I feel like I’m turning into my mother.” And it’s given the most literal rendering in Iris K. Shim’s supernatural horror exercise “Umma,” in which Sandra Oh stars as a rural beekeeper inhabited by the vengeful spirit of her estranged mom. But while that premise might sound like the makings of a tongue-in-cheek body-swap fright-fest, “Umma” hits on major issues, which prove both its chief virtue and its ultimate undoing, as it tries managing to thread the needle between its horror setpieces and the more serious themes of generational trauma lying beneath. A definite watch to keep you on the edge of your seats.
