Representing the experiences and suffering of Tatamkhulu Afrika's turbulent life and times during apartheid-era South Africa, this selection of his poetry provides a unique and personal view of what it was like to live a sensitive and reflective life in South Africa in the years leading up to the release of Nelson Mandela. The poems reflect all the aspects of Afrika's life-from the political resistance that resulted in his work being banned in South Africa to the joy of living to see the causes he fought for triumph. Lyrical and infused with persuasive narratives, Afrika's poems are intensely readable and offer a rare glimpse into the private emotional strains caused by apartheid.
