From the publisher:
 
“With expert, elegant and economical verse, Francine Simon’s debut collection blends ancestral Catholic mysticism and ancient folk Hinduism to create new and essential portraits of modern South African-Indian identity and womanhood. 
 
Unflinching and meditative, Thungachi tracks the journeys, migrations and maturations of peoples, families and the self, all the while deftly innovating with form, language and style – ultimately marking Simon out as one of South Africa’s most unexpectedly excellent poetic debutantes.”
 
13 x 20cm | 64 pages | softcover

 
Francine Simon was born in Durban in 1990 to Indian Catholic parents. Her poems have been published widely in South African literary journals, such as New Contrast, New Coin, Aerodrome, and Type/Cast, as well as three volumes of the Sol Plaatjie European Union Poetry Award Anthology.
