"Packed with more than 70 of Rachilo's cutting-edge poems mainly about events that unfolded before the world and the country in 1976 and 1977, this collection is like a journey into the past, which many of us would want to forget. Nostalgic Waves from Soweto is quirky, poignant, sardonic, haunting and sometimes just coldly observant. The volume contains striking images of a Soweto known only to those who lived, loved and suffered there. Rose Francis, director of African Perspectives Publishing, which is publishing the volume, believes it will be an invaluable addition to the growing body of literature on Soweto in the 1970s and its multi- facetted but often unknown life and characters. "His poetry is a prism reflecting the life, characters, thoughts and hopes of the time, sometimes from unexpected perspectives," she says. "It is bound to evoke nostalgia in those who knew the Soweto of those days and introduce newcomers to unknown dimensions of this famous, and infamous, township""--Sowetan.
