Fruitcake, Paperback / softback Book

Fruitcake Paperback / softback


"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.
