Desert Rain` - David Tyfield
`Desert Rain` is the premier work of David Tyfield, an award winning poet and meditation expert. David Tyfield will be doing a meditative reading of `Desert Rain`. The work explores themes of human nature, reality versus individual perception and love. An author with a T.S Eliot level of skill and execution, David`s work traverses the extremes of African landscape from the depths of the Kalahari to the calm of the Cape.
The presentation will incorporate photography and the art of sound; taking listeners on a journey of meditation exploring what it means to be African and what it means to be human.
Signed pre-release copies of `Desert Rain` will also be available for the special offer price of R150.

David Tyfield is a two time winning poet of the Heather Drummond Poetry Prize; a far cry from his humble beginnings as a high-school dropout. After returning to high school at 22, he went on to study literature at Rhodes University and in 2012, graduated with distinction from the UCT Creative Writing programme. He holds an MA in poetry writing. He is now writing a PhD in Literature and Ethics in Cape Town, where he lives with his wife, Claire-Marie Strombeck. Tyfield`s upcoming work draws from his tapestry of experiences which include the time he spent living in the Kalahari desert with the Khomani artist, Vetkat Rogopstaan Kruiper. His debut anthology, `Desert Rain`, is slated to be released in November 2018 by Shangaan Press.
