"Fruitcake" brings together four poem sequences about motherhood by 'this brilliant lyricist of human darkness' (Fiona Sampson). "Bougainvillae" explores love and having a mother. "Nylon" is about happiness, and not having or being a mother. Then "Bunker Sacks" brings grace but also the shock of being a young mother. Finally, "Grunter" shows the impact of Asperger's syndrome on both mother and child. Like all of Selima Hill's books, "Fruitcake" charts 'extreme experience with a dazzling excess' (Deryn Rees-Jones), with startling humor and surprising combinations of homely and outlandish.
