WINNER of the JUDITH A. MARKOWITZ AWARD

2020 LAMBDA LITERARY AWARD WINNER

LONGLISTED for the HEARTLAND BOOKSELLERS AWARD

In this debut collection by African American poet Xandria Phillips, HULL explores emotional impacts of colonialism and racism on the Black queer body and the present-day emotional impacts of enslavement in urban, rural, and international settings. HULL is lyrical, layered, history-ridden, experimental, textured, adorned, ecstatic, and emotionally investigative.
