Lyrical and lachrymose, Stephen Symon’s debut collection of poems fearlessly voyages through the vast and unknowable depths of ocean and adulthood.

In sparse, yet gorgeously flowing verse, Symons gives in to the currents of love, war, nostalgia and fatherhood, bringing a new sensibility to South African poetry, and creating a collection infused with an all-encompassing awe for the majesty and mystery of the natural world.

Stephen Symons was born in Cape Town in 1966. He holds a Masters in Creative Writing from the University of Cape Town and is currently working on a PhD in African Studies, focusing on the experiences of ex-conscripts of the South African Defence Force under apartheid.

An avid surfer, his writing has been published in journals, magazines and various anthologies throughout South Africa. Currently, Stephen lives in Cape Town, where he works as a lecturer and graphic designer.
