Launch of Space Inhabited by Echoes

How strange to find
after years of love that
what remains between
us is only
space inhabited
by echoes
and the people we
once were.

To celebrate the publication of her first poetry collection Karen Jennings will be interviewed by Helen Moffett on Wednesday 6 June at The Book Lounge Cape Town’s leading independent bookshop. Drinks and canapés will be served.

Space Inhabited by Echoes
Space Inhabited by Echoes is a frank and poignant collection of autobiographical poems that transport the reader across two continents, and the vast internal shifts that accompany love, loss and translocation.
‘Her poems display a virtuosity and depth that many poets only reach later in their careers.’ – Kobus Moolman
‘This is a breath-taking debut.’ – Helen Moffett
‘ It offers its gifts – of transcendence, of solace, of delicate silences – without fanfare, but often with some metaphorical force.’ – Rustum Kozain
Karen Jennings
Karen Jennings is the author of Finding Soutbek which was shortlisted for the inaugural Etisalat Prize for Literature 2013, Travels with My Father, an autobiographical novel, and Away from the Dead, a short story collection.
