White Man Crawling

White Man Crawling is a collection of short stories and poems by the award winning Bulawayo writer John Eppel. His stories are uncomfortably funny; his poems are uncomfortably sad. His stories speak first to all of us, then to his own quirky nature; his poems speak first to himself and to those few who have touched him nearly, and then to all of us. For more than forty years John Eppel has been a unique double-voice in the annals of Zimbabwean literature; the satirist and the lyricist. In both genres he is a craftsman worthy of Alexander Pope's definition of true wit: »What oft was thought, but ne'er so well expressed.«
