Operations and Tears

edited by Anthony Nazombe

This new anthology is the product of some seven years of writing, editing, collecting and collating of poetry emanating from Malawi. Many of the poems in the collection hark back to the time of major political changes between 1992 and 1994.

The poets are predominantly women and men from Malawi, both new and established voices. They include: Steve Chimombo, Frank Chipasula, Zangaphee Chizeze, David Kerr, Ken Lipenga, Jack Mapanje, Felix Munthali, Lupenga Mphande, Anthony Nazome, Patrick O’Malley and Francis Sefe. Some poems by the Nigerian, Niyi Osundare, which he wrote for, and dedicated to Jack Mapanje, are also included.
