MEDIA REVIEWS

'I read every single poem and wished that I'd had this book when I was pregnant, and feeding a baby, and watching her grow. I longed for such a book of observations on what it is to make a human.' - Sophie Heawood, author of The Hungover Games

'A beautiful collection, capturing that soft everyday magic of having babies - it's nice to have comradeship in this very particular type of love.' - Imogen Hermes Gowar, author of The Mermaid and Mrs Hancock

'If any book could distil the tender furious overwhelm of motherhood, I think it's this one.' - Imogen Russell Williams
