The Blanket is the new collection from Half Moon Books founding editor, Jane Kite.
Here the reader discovers a sequence of poems that vividly share memories of family life through the past fifty years. Like the blanket, the poems are skilfully sewn together around the creation of a blanket which the author describes as ‘a crochet hook to honour my daughter’s birth…. that might have wrapped her fifty years ago’
The Blanket is a wonderful evocative collection; both a reflection of the hardships and joys of family life and the bonds of motherhood.
