BiographyTagel Seifu is a witty and prolific novelist, poet and performer who published his first book of poems and short stories, Fiker (Love), at the age of 16. I love the titles of his collections, as well as the poems, for example Kefown Atinkut (Do not touch the beehive) and Yesedom Fitsame (The end of Sodom). There are many YouTube clips of him reading his poems to great acclaim.
