"Zahra Patterson is a writer and educator. Her short fiction has appeared in Kalyani Magazine and The Felt, and a reading of her play, Sappho's Last Supper, was staged at WOW Café Theatre.

Summary:
Creative or literary nonfiction
"Taking as its starting point an ultimately failed attempt to translate a Sesotho short story into English, Chronology explores the spaces language occupies in relationships, colonial history, and the postcolonial present. It is a collage of images and documents, folding on words-that-follow-no-chronology, unveiling layers of meaning of queering love, friendship, death, and power. Traveling from Cape Town to the Schomburg Center in New York, Zahra Patterson's Chronology reveals and revels in fragments of the past-personal and the present-political."--Publisher's website (viewed 2018 October 26).
