Transcontinental Delay by Simon van Schalkwyk
“Simon van Schalkwyk’s poetry pulls the world into uncommon focus. He is a poet of place and occasion, using telling precision of words, and the upending image. Not only is this a startling debut of maturity and accomplishment, but among its poems are those which, from the outset, will enter the literature.”
– P. R. Anderson
