by Jana van Niekerk, Rosemund Handler and Natalie Railoun
This anthology of poems by three Cape Town based women contains both surreal and naturalistic elements. As mature women whose sense of relationships is no longer founded on romantic and untested notions, the oscillations and unexpected outcomes of marriages, friendships and relations with children are all examined with flair and subtlety. The atmosphere, geography and history of the city of Cape Town plays an important role in defining their lives and so we travel with them in different dimensions.
