_____________________________

Preview: In its brief history, independent Kenya has gone through many trying and painful times. Some were brief and intense – such as the deaths of Tom Joseph Mboya, Josiah Mwangi Kariuki, Robert John Ouko and the 1982 attempted military coup. Others were protracted and attritionary – such as the Shifta War in what was called the North Eastern Province. But the post-election violence of 2007/2008 stands out as the event that came closest to tipping the country over into full-scale civil war. It was the greatest threat to Kenya as a unified and secure state. But even after averting the collapse of the state, the thoughtless and cavalier actions of the power elite and their cheer squads continue to confound.

The following ten articles attempt to capture that naked moment – the painful absurdities, the desperate prayers, the heartbreaking disappointments, and the stubborn persistence of hope. They represent a cry from the soul, a desperate, tearful plea for respect and honour in this land of beauty and awe.

Preview: In this second volume of poetry, which has an additional section of experimental prose, the “promise” heralded by Heartbeats of the Mind is realized. Jason Kap-Kirwok emerges as an earnest artist to whom thinking in images and playing with words to appropriately clothe his ideas seems to come effortlessly…the mind is teased into new ways of apprehending every day reality that all too often is made unnoticeable by the use of tired, tamed words.

The poet in this volume, as with his first, creates collocations that infuse familiar words and phrases with new vitality and beauty. Purchase link: http://jasonkapkirwok.com/about/?page_id=2


Excerpt:

"Here on a high rock stands Chep-koy, the tall one:
His eyes recall a savannah where grasses abound;
Where valiant battles with drought were lost and won;
Where long-legged raindrops bounded the dry ground."
