Things I Have Forgotten Before by Tanatsei Gambura

“In my language, the dead are welcomed into the home. But the word for home is also the word for sing, so maybe invited into a song.”

Bold in her work, Gambura confronts subjects that have been clouded by fear, be it in the personal, social or political arena. In lines that are as inquisitive as they are authoritative, as unsettling as they are engaging she forces the reader to explore the boundaries of their thinking. An immersive experience, Gambura’s writing is necessary and bound to stay with you long after the last page.
