Andrew Chatora shares his immigrant experience in his new book “Where the Heart Is”
Kharis Publishing today announces the release of “Where the Heart Is” (ISBN: 978-1637460849) by Andrew Chatora, an unforgettable tableau of the struggles so endured by many immigrants.

CHICAGO, Ill. – Where The Heart Is offers a nuanced view of one family’s struggle to negotiate cold Britannia as they face dicey neighborhoods, sketchy liaisons, and perennial ill-fate. Chatora’s diaspora is not the glorified El Dorado; it is an honest place of grit and survival. A stellar contribution.

According to Memory Chirere, “For migrant Fari Mupawaenda, life cannot be complete without quitting the back-breaking struggle for survival in the UK and returning to the laid-back streets of a warm Harare… but does it make sense for him to want to return to the periphery once more? The man who returns, why does he return? To what does he return?

Fari’s reverse trip is a story about the human body, a tight memory test, and a duel between geography and anticipation…

Masterful in style and form, the narratives in Andrew Chatora’s Where the Heart Is are intensely provocative.”
