From the #1 bestselling author of Graffiti Lane and Punch and Judy comes another edgy poetry collection packed with explosive emotion and pulsing with candid insights into the underbelly of urban life.

"Nobody who comes from a broken home

wants to be broken."

Retrospective takes a raw trip down memory lane, delving into the mind of a child navigating the streets of a council estate in northern England, stripping back the layers of young adulthood in the search for love and acceptance beneath the glare of the city neon lights, and finally crossing the bridge to a place where troubled past meets optimistic future in a literary celebration of transformative determination and steely inner strength.

Kelly Van Nelson is an award-winning poet and fiction author, spoken word artist, Managing Director on the executive board of a Fortune 500, trailblazer tackling social issues, wife, mother, and juggler.
