Description

The eagerly-awaited debut from one of the South Africa’s most exciting young poets, Matric Rage is Genna Gardini’s reckoning with youth, womanhood and mortality. With hyper-literate, humorous and often heartbreaking poems, Gardini signals a wind change in South African poetry – where the personal is not just political, but polemical, too. In sickness and sex, misogyny and manners, this is a collection that, above all, showcases a powerful writer coming unapologetically into her own. Genna Gardini, born in 1986, is the winner of the 2012 DALRO New Coin Prize and a 2013 Mail & Guardian Young South African. Born in Johannesburg and raised in Durban, Genna currently lives in Cape Town, where she works as a lecturer and critic.
