Anne Landsman on 'The Last Resort' by Douglas Rogers

Having recently finished reading the galley copy of Douglas Roger's memoir I have to wholeheartedly agree with Anne Landsman, author of The Rowing Lesson:

"With breathtaking talent, wry wit and abundant heart, Douglas Rogers tells the compulsively readable tale of his parents’ daily struggles to hold onto their land in the nightmarish landscape of present day Zimbabwe. With every turn of the page, you fear for the Rogerses survival, as well as the survival of the country they love so much. But even as they face the most difficult of challenges, their indomitable spirit shines through, revealing the ordinary heroism of people in extraordinary circumstances."

Congratulations Doug!
