I Wish I Had More Mothers

by Ann Gray (1st Sep 18 | 978-1-912196-12-8)

 

Winner of the 2017/18 Book & Pamphlet Competition

 

We both loved this moving, tender collection of poems which explores what it means to have and to lose a mother. The poems in this pamphlet are lyrical, carefully crafted with a lightness of touch and, so importantly, "unafraid to be kind". At once a joyful and aching read. – Liz Berry
