uHlanga Press launched Thabo Jijana's stunning Failing Maths and My Other Crimes at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Art Museum in Port Elizabeth on 2 November.
The launch was attended by a small crowd, who listened to Thabo and uHlanga's publisher Nick Mulgrew talk about the genesis of the book, the politics of writing in English, dealing with loss through literature, and a host of other things. Thabo also read a number of his poems from the collection, including "You Have No Power Here", "Biko", and "Visitations".

The printing of Failing Maths and My Other Crimes was funded in part by a grant from the Arts & Culture Trust and Nedbank Arts Affinity.
The book is out now from good bookstores, and via e-mail order here.
