In this deeply evocative début anthology, Renée Sigel takes the reader on a journey through a richly textured labyrinth of truth and contradiction. Her words and imagery delve into the core nature of self - of belonging, of sexuality, of displacement: Five African Songs and Sexions, selections from life and love, alternately weave through the intense and tenacious fabric of the African soul and its convergence with suburban ordinariness. Hottentot Venus traces the tragic true life story of a young woman, Sara Baartman, which mirrors the current reality of the modern day KoiSan tribe. From continent to continent, Renée Sigel's poetic insights will echo over landscapes and divides. "Renée Sigel's poetry has an erotic thrill and a daring rarely seen in contemporary English language poetry. She is a poet entirely in love with both language and the world, but at the same time absolutely unsentimental about either. Her best work reads like that of a 1920s French surrealist reincarnated in the body of a 21st Century woman." Kevin Higgins, author of The Boy With No Face (Salmon Poetry, 2005)
