From the publisher

Daughter Wound explores a young Black South African woman’s negotiation of intimate relationships: sexual, familial and political. Nkateko Masinga is an award-winning writer and scholar. A graduate of the University of Iowa’s 2021 International Writing Program, she was a 2019 Fellow of the Ebedi International Writers Residency, a 2018 Mandela Washington Fellow and a Golden Key Scholar. In 2018 she was nominated for a Pushcart Prize.

The cover design features ‘Kin’, a painting by UK artist Anna Ilsley, which was commissioned especially for this collection of 15 new poems. Ilsley’s work challenges the construct of the male gaze and offers a feminist disruption of patriarchal images.
