Review quote

"The Mountain Behind the House is a collection to be treasured. The poet's sparse, controlled style serves as the foundation for poems replete with emotional energy, elliptical resonance and symbolic power. Through Moolman's defamiliarising gaze, social and natural landscapes are conjured anew, laying bare unsettling realities and rarely acknowledged truths." - Kelwyn Sole
