Theresa Lola’s debut poetry collection In Search of Equilibrium is an extraordinary and exacting study of death and grieving. Where the algorithms of the body and the memory fail, Lola finds the words that will piece together the binary code of family and restart the recovery program. In doing so, these unflinching poems work towards the hard-wired truths of life itself – finding hope in survival, lines of rescue in faith, a stubborn equilibrium in the equations of loss and renewal.
Theresa appeared in two events for us in 2019, featuring at Inia Ellams’ RAP Party and then at our African Prize poetry event hosted by Bernardine Evaristo.
