Strawberry Lips

R160.00 Inc.VAT

A multitude of books have been written about the Kingdom in the Sky, yet no book has emerged out of Lesotho more intimate and relevant. In this impeccable balance of candor and creative ability, a Mosotho spiced with cosmopolitan flavours confronts, among other things, general Mosotho-ness, her own, and lack thereof in poetry and prose. Indeed the emergence of such a book might have been anticipated; nonetheless you’ll be taken aback by the seeming ease with which the Mountain Kingdom’s literary diamond brings forth this non-fiction gem. Strawberry Lips is a collection of ordinary stories about life told in an extraordinary way and this smoothness of style leaves the reader feeling that not only have they stumbled upon genius, but a lifelong friend.

‘The author displays a wonderful ability to paint vivid pictures in prose and poetry which will both delight and intrigue the reader. Many of these are clearly deeply personal and revealing.’– His Excellency Gerry Gervin, Ambassador of Ireland to Lesotho

‘Discovering Ms. Letokoto-Mabejane’s work is like finding out that Genuis lives next door with her husband and son.’– Poetry Farm, Lesotho
