76. Kayo Chingonyi and Victoria Adukwei Bulley

Kayo Chingonyi’s remarkable second collection follows the course of a  ‘blood condition’ as it finds its way to deeply personal grounds. From the banks of the Zambezi river to London and Leeds, these poems speak to how distance and time, nations and history, can collapse within a body. ‘A Blood Condition‘ is one of the most arresting and beautiful set of poems of this or any year’ (Guardian)

Victoria Adukwei Bulley’s much anticipated debut poetry collection, Quiet, circles around ideas of black interiority, intimacy and selfhood, playing at the tensions between the impulse to guard one’s ‘inner life’ and the knowledge that, as Audre Lorde writes, ‘your silence will not protect you’. Victoria Adukwei Bulley is an alumna of the Barbican Young Poets, recipient of an Eric Gregory Award, and has held residencies in the US, Brazil, and the V&A Museum in London. Hosted by Ledbury Poetry Critic Sarala Estruch.
