Everything is a Deathly Flower: Nondwe Mpuma speaks to Maneo Mohale about their debut collection and invites them to read selected poems.
Everything is a Deathly Flower was published in 2019. In this collection, Mohale reckons boldly with the experience of – and the reconstruction of a life after – a sexual assault. Their unapologetic and disarming voice carries through a budding and blooming garden of poetics, rooted in a contemporary southern African tradition, but springing forth in queer and radical new directions
Everything is a Deathly Flower won the 2020 Glenna Luschei Prize for African Poetry and was a finalist for the 2020 Ingrid Jonker Prize.
