New collection of poems by Joan Hambidge. Text in Afrikaans.

“What is conspicuous throughout is the way in which Hambidge deals with ‘words of the heart’ – words possessing a clear personal meaning, but rendered in such a way that the reader is allowed to attach a personal meaning to them. The playful way in which she engages with words." Johan Myburg, author of Uittogboek
