Twenty interviews with poets are collected here, including one with the book's editor. Lesego Rampolokeng appears twice, once in tandem with Ike Muila, and one of the interviews features the members of the performance poetry collective Botsotso Jesters, among whom Muila also numbers. Four of the poets are visitors to South Africa, whose comments sometimes (though not invariably) bear in interesting ways on those of their South African colleagues: see, for instance, Nathan Zack, from Israel, on the values of the pluralistic society and the problematic nature of consensus (87).
