Lilac Uprisingby Phyllis Muthoni
The collection of 85 poems covers a ‘wonderfully varied, in terms of geography, theme and tone.
‘Phyllis Muthoni is an essential emergent Kenyan poet. Her poetry is inspirational, one that gathers from everyday life, one that easily urges us to write on, for it makes every moment on earth extraordinary. Her debut poetry collection, Lilac Uprising, delightful and helpful, is a text with the beauty of craft. ‘Soon,’ writes Phyllis, ‘the streets will be a revolution of colour, suffused with a tangible tenderness.’
