New from Dye Hard Press: Left Over by Kobus Moolman
The poems in Moolman’s latest collection tease the boundaries between fact and fiction, between memory and invention. The poems push into territories as yet unexplored in Moolman’s work: the obsessions and hallucinations of the body ‒ all permeated with a wry humour, the kind that laughs at its own terrible seriousness.
Kobus Moolman was born in 1964 in Pietermaritzburg. He has been awarded the Ingrid Jonker Prize, the PANSA award for best drama, the DALRO poetry prize and the South African Literary award for poetry. He teaches creative writing at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in Durban.
His previous poetry collections include Light and After, Separating the Seas, Feet of the Sky and Time like Stone. His play Full Circle has also been published, as has Blind Voices, a collection of radio plays. He edited the anthology Tilling the Hard Soil: Poetry, Prose and Art by South African Writers with Disabilities.
