“In these provocative poems Kerry Hammerton probes with a ruthless acuity how society constructs and represents self and women. Her poems also explore the lived-in-ness of the body with its desires, its beauty and even its joys. Ranging from lyrical poetry to flash-fiction this experimental collection is richly satisfying.” Kobus Moolman, author of The Mountain Behind the House

"afterwards is a thrilling collection that takes us in a series of lyrical bounds from the poet’s ancestry in Wales to her birth in England to the country and spirit animals she inhabits now. An exhilarating read."Finuala  Dowling, author of Notes from the Dementia Ward

Kerry Hammerton's previous poetry collections include Secret Keeper and These are the lies I told you. She is a freelance tutor and supervisor on the Rhodes’ Masters in Creative Writing programme, and lives in Cape Town.
