Hey English Students! Based on the novel Jagveld by South African Deon Meyer, the film #HuntingEmma is an outback crime thriller following a woman (Emma) as she is chased through the desert by drug smugglers after witnessing a murder. Emma is cunning and resourceful, with combat training, keeping the plot suspenseful as she struggles to survive. The cinematography is beautiful - this is a guaranteed summer hit, especially if you're a fan of Deon Meyer's work! #HuntingEmma is available now on iTunes, Vudu, YouTube, Microsoft, DirecTv, Googleplay, and Hoopla! https://apple.co/2Jz6G3v

In 2000, he was awarded the Ruth Lilly Prize for lifetime achievement in American poetry by The Poetry Foundation. This poem appears in his new collection "Night School" published earlier this month by Penguin Books.
