Introduction/Review


"Relationships are one of the most elusive things to pin down, in life and in story. But we try. Here we have poignant moments of that mystery that evoke what could be a lifetime of that desperate push and pull, that yearning and resistance, that weakness and resilience, that makes us ask afresh: What do we really want from each other? From ourselves? And why? The bittersweet elegance of Mutsinzi Eric's Waiting for Words is deepened by the deceptively clear portraits by Nduta Kariuki alongside it, a pairing that asks us: What is the relationship between words and images? What are they saying to each other? What can each say and do that the other cannot? And then there are the beautiful layers of voice and translation that build the whole into an experience more resonant than the sum of its parts. Altogether a truly innovative and inspired work of art." - Doreen Baingana, Author of Tropical Fish; Director of Mawazo Africa Writing Institute
