On Reflection : Moments, Flight and Nothing New, Paperback / softback Book

On Reflection : Moments, Flight and Nothing New Paperback / softback

Part of the Twenty in 2020 series

Paperback / softback


On Reflection: Moments, Flight and Nothing New attempts to grapple with the complexities of our present moment.

Personal and imagined stories appear as fragments of everyday scenes forming a narrative of self-discovery.

Vignettes accompanied by photography explore life's contradictions, trauma, and the ways in which we navigate the fluidity of cities.

The poems move back and forth in time and across Europe, highlighting a range of experiences and perspectives of our modern society as a series of snapshots.

In each, we catch a glimpse of ourselves, demonstrating how such moments and characters influence our journeys.

Written from the consciousness of a British Ghanaian, the collection is a love letter to the lived and shared experience of those struggling and learning about the various intersections of their identity.

Through the voice of Akos and other characters, Wiredu reaches to understand the significance of history, its effect on an evolving African diaspora in Europe, and finds hope in the present as she proposes an optimistic dialogue about the future.
