Early this September, South African press, uHlanga, will publish Sihle Ntuli’s chapbook, Rumblin’
The book is available from the beginning of September through bookstores in South Africa and Namibia, distributed by Protea Boekhuis, and is from next week available overseas through the African Books Collective.
“Rumblin‘ captures this Durban in a style gradually becoming Ntuli’s own – sparse free verse that relies on its own beat and sound to create and emphasise meaning.
It’s a slim and surprising chapbook, full of verve, unexpected pockets of sadness and humour, and, in general, is just really good. This is the right thing for you if you’re tired of the same old thing.”
Ntuli is a classicist and academic, born in 1990. He holds a Master of Arts degree in Classical Civilisations and has lectured previously at the University of the Free State. During his tenure, he was awarded the 2019 CTL Innovation Award for Curriculum Design and Delivery. He is previously the author of Stranger (2015) and was shortlisted for the DALRO Poetry Prize in 2017.
