This collection of essays is bound together not so much by a common thread of subject matter or theme as by the authors' shared admiration for Christopher Wortham, Emeritus Professor of English at the University of Western Australia and sometime lecturer at the University College of Rhodesia - now the University of Zimbabwe - who grew up and worked in Zimbabwe and South Africa (his alma mater is Rhodes University) before taking his young family to Australia to escape the war in Zimbabwe in the 1970s. The authors of the collection are former colleagues, past students and fellow academics from around the world. This makes for rather a special publication. The articles themselves are preceded by a tribute to Wortham by Geoffrey Cooper and Robert White, and are followed by a collection of memories by Wortham and his wife Anne.
