Equal parts flippant and plaintive, Nick Mulgrew's first collection of poems is a three-part meditation on the ways in which people lose trust in each other, their communities, and themselves. Experimentally laced with monologue, anecdote and truism, these thirty-two self-aware, diary-esque poems languish in the small sadnesses and frayings of a terminally uncertain society in a socially-mediated age.
Nick Mulgrew was born in Durban in 1990 to British parents. Raised in uMhlanga and Auckland, he currently lives in Cape Town, where he works as a writer and as the publisher of uHlanga Press.
