Surviving Loss

by Busisiwe Mahlangu

Mahlangu’s debut collection, written between 2015 and 2018, is undoing a house of silence. Her writing is too lived in to be naïve and somehow manages to remain untainted by the cynicism of growing up. If it is true that the artist is the child who survives, then this is the book that journey spat out. Surviving Loss is a gentle-urgent fight for breath and voice.
