Publication Day: A Little Resurrection by Selina Nwulu

Today is the publication day of Selina Nwulu’s debut full-length poetry collection, A Little Resurrection. These poems are equally at home in the golden light of Senegal as they are in the harsh winds of Yorkshire. In these poems blackness itself is complicated, extending the resonances of being to reflect the self in a state of flux, a fugitive spirit battling the harm of erasure. There is a profound joy in these poems, all the more powerful for being hard-won. This book heralds the branching out of an important trajectory in Anglophone poetry.
