     Brian Rose, Rand Daily Mail

"It bears testimony to the resilience and courage of the oppressed in South Africa ... His poetry is devastatingly forthright and hard-hitting."
     Tyrone August, The Star

"Asvat's imagery is stark ... his poems taut encapsulations of the injustices wreaked on Black people."
     Asha Rambally, The Graphic

"Asvat's poem (‘Possibilities for a Man Hunted by SBs’) is a clear and simple statement of the true state of affairs ... reducible to mathematical terms."
     Mbulelo Mzamane,
     Perspectives On South African English Literature

"Asvat's poems ... with many depths, clever twists and juxtapositions, are exciting, true, and thought-provoking."
     Wendy Vogt & Alan James, Upstream

"... an almost palpable tenderness for a country whom the poet alludes to as if she were a lover."
     Neela Alvarez-Pereyre, Commonwealth Essays & Studies

The Time Of Our Lives is the historically important anthology whose poems played such a pivotal role in the struggle against the height of oppression in South Africa.  This completely revised edition includes several poems that were not in the original collection, and the organisation of the poems into a more coherent order.  The Time Of Our Lives accurately portrays what it was like to live and fight, love and die under the discrimination and tyranny of apartheid.
