This is the Story of Five Marriages and One Gun A British couple wonders at the unknowable city beyond their guarded compound while building walls between themselves. An American suspects his new home is having an insidious effect on his Zimbabwean wife and their young daughter. An enthusiastic young intellectual follows his wife to the city and finds only danger and disillusion. An intelligence officer loses a crucial piece of evidence. It will cost him his marriage, his mistress, and maybe his life. An impoverished taxi driver and his wife find a gun in the cab. From this point on, all their lives are tied to the trigger. In C.B.
