Lifestyle Magazine Zw concurs with Pentron Designs to deliver arguably the most creative book of all times “The Diary of a Black Revolver”.
Sharing with us the theory behind the name of the book one of the authors Shingirai Makurumidze said “we came up with idea that since it’s an anthology of six authors we thought of a revolver which loads up six bullets, so basically the notion of black revolves around the idea of us being Afrocentric”.
The Book which features 48 creative writings from six talented authors will be officially launched on the 24th of December, which happens to be Lifestyle Magazine’s 2nd anniversary. Speaking to our reporter Ronald Masinga the CEO of Lifestyle said“the motive behind the book is to offer rich, creative writings to the world and in doing so supporting our local authors and expose their works to the public”. In addition he said “this is just the beginning and in 2019 Lifestyle Magazine Zw will be publishing more books.”
The authors who have mastered the art of solidarity are on a quest to take local talents to a higher level and this pioneer book which is a collection of poems, short stories and motivational writings clearly shows the brilliance of their artistic skills.The authors of the book include Shingirai Makurumidze, Munashe Chakaonda, Tatenda Bonga, Lloyd Kapombe, Nyasha Makombe and Progress Nyanguwo.
Stanley Ngoma who is the Creative Director of Lifestyle Magazine Zw and owner of Pentron Designs is handling all the designs, promo material and layout of the book.
The Diary of a Black Revolver will be available online and hardcopies in selected book shops nation wide and in the meantime enjoy this short sample of the book which is available for free download on the link below
