“A delightful collection of poems that take us back to the days of Biko, ghoema, jazz, pianos, dance and coffee, dangling from the lips and hips of the Cape, bursting with energy, overflowing with pride. ~ Rozena Maart
The Promise of Memory by Michael Weeder
This selection of poems – covering the years from 1980 to the present day – expresses the poets personal attempts at making sense of the everyday, ordinary difficulties, and the small victories of life. The offering emphasises, sometimes in an exploratory suggestiveness, how differences should not be divisive and that they form part of the range of ways in which we belong to – and are of – each other.
