Stranger, Baby, Paperback Book

Description

The powerful new collection from award-winning poet, Emily Berry.

Emily Berry's Dear Boy was described as a 'blazing debut', winning the Forward Prize for Best First Collection in 2013.

Stranger, Baby, its follow-up, is marked by the same sense of fantasy and play, estrangement and edgy humour for which she has become known.

But these poems delve deeper again, in their off-kilter and often painful encounter with childhood loss.

This is a book of mourning, recrimination, exhilaration and 'oceanic feeling': 'A meditation on a want that can never be answered.'
