Award-winning poet and playwright Kobus Moolman is currently in Grahamstown as Mellon Writer in Residence at Rhodes University, attached to the MA programme in Creative Writing. Left Over is his sixth book of poems.

“Moolman's strengths as one of the leading voices in South African poetry come through when he's most vulnerable - when he battles the varied manifestations of ordinary life.” - Mxolisi Nyezwa, reviewing Separating the Seas

“Sometimes terse and astringent, sometimes luxurious, the poems are always specific, rooted in the cycles of earth and body. This is a beautiful work, distinctively South African in imagery and diction.” - Joan Metelerkamp, reviewing Light and After
