“In her bestselling Mophead, poet laureate and fast talking PI Selina Tusitala Marsh recounted her experience growing up Pasifika in Aotearoa and realising how her (and your) difference can make a difference.
In Mophead Tu, Selina is crowned Commonwealth Poet and invited to perform for the Queen in Westminster Abbey. But when someone at work calls her a `sellout, Selina starts doubting herself. Can she stand with her people who struggled against the Queen . . . and still serve the Queen?
From the sinking islands in the South Seas to the smoggy streets of London, Mophead Tu: The Queens Poem is a hilariously thought-provoking take on colonial histories and one poets journey to bridge the divide.”
