Sarah Lubala is a Congolese-born poet. Her family fled the Democratic Republic of Congo two decades ago admidst political unrest as militant factions tried to overthrow the dictator Mobutu Sese Seko. Her family relocated first to Cape Town, South Africa, then Abidjan - the capital of the Ivory Coast - before returning to South Africa and settling in Johannesburg.

 

Her debut collection of poems, A History of Disappearance, is a taut, lyrical, devastating meditation on forced migration, gender-based violence and queer exploration.
