Echo Location: A Guide to Sea Point for Residents and Visitors
Shading our eyes from the glare we stand still, breath held, scanning this blue country we are on the edge of, watching for a sign that we may go home. In poems written from and about a specific point at the tip of a continent, Karen Press sends out delicate and skilful soundings: where are we? who are we? where have we come from? what might we become? Never overburdened by earnestness, Echo Location takes a good look at the hard questions by means of great entertainment.
