New Poetry Launch: Never by Bernat Kruger and All the Days by Robert Berold


Deep South Publishing invites you to the launch of two new books of poems: Never by Bernat Kruger and my new book, All the Days. The books will be launched in Johannesburg, Pretoria and Cape Town.

“Bernat Kruger has something which seems increasingly rare in South African poetry today – a truly distinctive voice… insatiable, frenetic, reaching across the South African landscape, from the malls of Germiston to farms in Standerton and the back valleys of Limpopo… Kruger is inspired by the fleeting effervescence of life, wanting to grab every moment, to hold every breath, to live every second.”

“Robert Berold’s fourth book of poems reaches further and sings more clearly than his earlier work. The reader will be struck by the spare lucidity of the language, the elemental sense of place – and the way love in the end gets the better of difficulty.”
