Loud and Yellow Laughter launch
Join Sindiswa Busuku-Mathese and Fred Khumalo in conversation at the Joburg launch of her debut collection.
The original version of this collection was written as part of the poet’s Master’s thesis in Creative Writing at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. A collection of 39 pieces, some mystical and elliptical, some seemingly mundane snatches of prose-poetry that retain a poetic intensity, together they create an atmosphere of nostalgia tinged with a subtle yet matter-of-fact sadness. Accompanied by a series of graphic images, made up of old photographic portraits and scenes of natural beauty, Busuku-Mathese has created a very well crafted and enchanting body of work.
If you're planning to drive down for the launch, here's some tips on parking:
- Loveday, across from the Rand Club. You get their either from the left lane on Commissioner or from Fox Street. The club has security there.
- Commissioner, on the block past Bridge Books, between Harrison and Simmonds. Our friends at Corner House also have 24-hour security on that block.
