Victor Dlamini on SAfm: Nkosi, Matthews, Chimurenga, Clarke and More

Lewis Nkosi (ii)We are lucky to get a second bite at the poetry of James Matthews on SAfm Literature this week, after missing him on the show last month. His dissident voice has raged on for decades, and I look forward to discussing his collection, Cry Rage, and to learning more about his current publishing projects.

I’m also privileged to welcome novelist and essayist Lewis Nkosi into the studio for a half-hour chat; here is one of the pictures I was able to snap of the writer, who was shortlisted for this year’s Sunday Times Fiction Prize for Mandela’s Ego, at the Cape Town Book Fair.

Further highlights:

  • A chat with Rucera Seethal, art director of the magazine Chimurenga, about the new issue: Chimurenga 11 – Conversations With Poets Who Refuse To Speak.
  • A look into the why and wherefore of ex-headmaster Alan Clarke’s The Handbook of School Management, recently published by Kate McCallum.
  • John Orr‘s excellent “Word of Mouth” programme.
  • Roger Webster‘s “Fireside Chat” – storytelling that will have you spellbound!

Don’t forget you can listen live over the internet:
