Strange Fruit is a courageous debut with a remarkable range in theme and tone, from the nostalgic to the comedic and bawdy, from angry, melancholic to steadfast and comforting.

Helen Moffett is a freelance editor, author and academic. She has lectured as far afield as Trinidad and Alaska, but calls Cape Town home. Strange Fruit is her first collection of her own poems.

“In this reflective collection Helen manages to capture images of loss, ageing and infertility that are at once funny, heartbreaking and thought-provoking. A love of nature shines through on every page and our thoughts are allowed to transcend the urban spaces we occupy. The poems are honest, forthright and powerful. Join Helen on this expedition of the senses.”
