Lonely lovely lyric, these poems tell a uniquely South African story in a uniquely South African voice.
“Here is a distinctive new voice in South African poetry. Marike Beyer’s writing is both simple and highly complex at the same time, delicate and tender and hard and angry. She brings her own unique perspective to the old themes of family, home and identity.”
“In deceptively simple words, Beyers captures complex memories of family scenes and relationship dynamics, stretching across time and space.”
