Another new release for 2014 and this time from Tendai Huchu, author of The Hairdresser of Harare and one of this year's Caine Prize shortlisted writers. Out later this year (will update with exact release date when I know), The Maestro, The Magistrate and The Mathematician is published by amaBooks - and here's a little something about the book courtesy of amaBooks:


These three characters from Zimbabwe, each with their own unique story, struggle with loss, identity, and sanity as they try to make new lives in Britain, having left the chaos of their own country behind. 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, preferring novels and fantasy. The Mathematician, full of youth, follows a carefree, hedonistic lifestyle, until the universes of the three main characters collide. Three distinct and distinctive characters grappling with notions of home, identity and destiny.
