Mother's Kitchen and Other Places

by Antreka M. Tladi

Mother's Kitchen and Other Places is a collection of poems reflecting on life's memorable moments from growing up in the intertwining entanglements of life in South Africa to a contemplation of emotions in love, memories, hardships of domestic violence and grief. It magnifies ordinary day to day trivial moments, captured in words, and seeks hope in elements of nature as the human life journeys through the human condition in search of purpose.
