Foundling's Island

by P.R. Anderson

P.R. Anderson’s second collection – which as an unfinished manuscript shared the 2003 Sanlam Literary Award – announced his arrival as a fresh and significant voice in South African poetry. Republished now for the first time in over a decade, Foundling’s Island’s journey of coasts, creatures and dreams is as tightly crafted and joyously readable as it has ever been. A collection in which form is created and meaning maintained with the lightest of touches, to the greatest effect.

“Confirms a major voice – taut wit, tactile moment, wisdom.”
