Denis Hirson was born in 1951, and lived in South Africa until the age of 22. He is a graduate of the University of the Witwatersrand, where he studied Social Anthropology. Since 1975 he has lived in France, where he works as a teacher and writer. He has published five books, all of them concerned with the memory of the apartheid years in South Africa, all of them crossing the frontier between prose and poetry: The House Next Door to Africa (David Philip); I Remember King Kong (the Boxer), We Walk Straight So You Better Get Out the Way, White Scars, and Gardening in the Dark (all with Jacana). He is the editor with Martin Trump of The Heinemann Book of South African Short Stories (Heinemann, 1994); and editor of The Lava of this Land, South African Poetry 1960-1996 (Northwestern University Press, 1997).
