Yellow Shade

by Dimakatso Sedite

Yellow Shade evokes the stark textures of township and rural community life: the beauty and passion, the cruelty and humour, the noise, music and stillness. Sedite's poems are constructed from unpredictable images - 'a rain-sniffing wind', 'the knuckles of chairs', a cupboard 'wailing like a dog left alone in a garage' - in a gritty language entirely her own.

Yellow Shade was joint winner of the 2022 NIHSS Award for best book of poetry.
