New Poetry Collection by Karen Jennings

February 8, 2018

After successfully having published her Etisalat Prize shortlisted debut novel Finding Soutbek, her short story collection Away from the Dead, and the moving autobiographical novel Travels with My Father, Karen Jennings now delights us with her first full collection of poetry.

Space Inhabited by Echoes

Space inhabited by Echoes will be published on 17 May 2018.

Moving from South Africa to Brazil put everything into focus and Space Inhabited by Echoes takes the reader on a journey from the first pangs of love to settling down to married life in a new country. It is a very frank and poignant collection of poems inspired by the author’s personal experiences.

Karen Jennings

How strange to find
after years of love that
what remains between
us is only

space inhabited
by echoes
and the people we
once were.
