Whiteheart: Prologue to Hysteria
I've never celebrated nor embraced negativity in my life. Every single thing I have tried to do or written has come out of a need to actually eradicate or wipe out whatever it is that seeks to destroy the soul of other people. .I respect the WORD. People talk about wordplay, I don't play with it.it's one of the most powerful weapons in the world. --- Lesego Rampolokeng is well known in South Africa and internationally for his confrontational performance poetry. Whiteheart-his first prose work-is a nightmarish plunge into a 1970s Soweto childhood where violence waits everywhere to make its nest in the child-narrator's mind.
