Queen of Infinite Space by Ruth Aylett chronicles a life filled with promises, passion and love. A collection in which the author takes the reader from the empty carless streets of her childhood, the simple pleasures of family life to the rigours of parenthood and the inevitability of old age. A remarkable honest collection that saviours the past without dipping into the pool of nostalgia and one where the author unflinchingly attacks the present.
I could be bounded in a nutshell, and count myself a king of infinite space, were it not
that I have bad dreams. – Hamlet, II.ii
