A Little Resurrection is the debut full-length collection from acclaimed poet Selina Nwulu.

In these reflections on being and blackness, informed by empathy and intellectual curiosity, Nwulu melds the golden light of Senegal with the harsh winds of Yorkshire. Here, blackness itself is complicated, and the resonances of being are extended to offer an image of the self in a state of flux – a fugitive spirit battling the harm of erasure.

In its profound joy, all the more powerful for being hard-won, A Little Resurrection heralds the branching out of an important trajectory in Anglophone poetry.

Publisher Review

Praise for Selina Nwulu: "Nwulu uses her pen as a compass directing us from her living room across the globe . . . Poetry that breaks through roadblocks and borders, that is its own passport, its own common language -- Joelle Taylor The poems in The Secrets I Let Slip capture that liminal space where the body seems to reside in two spaces at the same time. The poet skulks effortlessly in the background of immigration borders and job centre interviews, producing imagery where her subjects are 'a collection of atoms shredding and dividing' and the body is constantly in motion yet static -- Malika Booker
