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.
A beautiful collection, capturing that soft everyday magic of having babies - it's nice to have comradeship in this very particular type of love.
If any book could distil the tender furious overwhelm of motherhood, I think it's this one.
Ana Sampson's collection of poems is just the thing to dip into after the night-time feed.
