About this book:

The much anticipated fifth volume by one of South Africa’s leading contemporary poets in English. Other Signs brings Ingrid de Kok’s lyric gift to a new level of quiet intensity as she looks backwards and forwards across the self’s endeavour to name the world, to touch it and to draw from it the meanings of experience. Compassionate, poignant, exact and playful, each poem is aware of all the others in the collection and together they constitute the depth of a remarkable reflective mind. “. . . a profound engagement with what it means to be South African.” – Kylie Thomas, Mail & Guardian (2011)
