Don’t miss the launch of Because I Couldn’t Kill You by Kelly-Eve Koopman at The Book Lounge (7 Aug)
 More about the book!

MFBooks Joburg and The Book Lounge invite you to the much-anticipated launch of Because I Couldn’t Kill You by Kelly-Eve Koopman.

In this debut collection, feminist Kelly-Eve Koopman grapples with the complex beauty and brutality of the everyday as she struggles with her family legacy.

Sometimes tragic, sometimes hilarious, she faces up to herself as a brown, newly privileged ‘elder millennial’, caught between middle-class aspirations and social justice ideals. An artist, a daughter, a queer woman in love, she is in pursuit of healing, demanding justice, while trying to lose those last five kilograms, to the great disappointment of her feminist self.

‘Koopman brilliantly rewrites herself, and all of us whose identities have been smudged, misshapen and erased, back into existence. South Africa needs this book.’ – Sara-Jayne King, Killing Karoline
