“Shining in Brightness” presents twenty poems about loss, love and growing up in quiet suburbia. Praised as ‘jewel-like droplets in a grey urban landscape,’ these poems chronicle a young woman’s mystical decade from 18 to early adulthood.

The poet-wanderer journeys from the leafy Cape Town suburb of her childhood to California, Brazil, Cambridge, Poland and the Eastern Cape before alighting in North London.

In the 2013 edition, two accompanying essays provide insights on both the writer’s process and the inner hues of these gem-like poems.
