Loud and Yellow Laughter: poems by Sindiswa Busuku-Mathese. The original version of this collection was written as part of the poet’s Master’s thesis in Creative Writing at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. A collection of 39 pieces, some mystical and elliptical, some seemingly mundane snatches of prose-poetry that retain a poetic intensity, together they create an atmosphere of nostalgia tinged with a subtle yet matter-of-fact sadness. Accompanied by a series of graphic images, made up of old photographic portraits and scenes of natural beauty, Busuku-Mathese has created a very well crafted and enchanting body of work.
