About the book

Equal parts flippant and plaintive, Nick Mulgrew’s first collection of poems, the myth of this is that we’re all in this together, is a three-part meditation on the ways in which people lose trust in each other, their communities, and themselves. Experimentally laced with monologue, anecdote and truism, these 32 self-aware, diary-esque poems languish in the small sadnesses and frayings of a terminally uncertain society in a socially-mediated age.

About the poet

Nick Mulgrew was born in Durban in 1990 to British parents. Raised in uMhlanga and Auckland, he currently lives in Cape Town, where he works as a writer and as the publisher of uHlanga Press.
