'Norah manages - perhaps because this book distils a lifetime of writing - to bring before us the tragedy of the human condition, making it sound beautiful and worth living through.' --Paul Sutherland
'Intelligent, compassionate and humane... a treasure trove.' --Helen Burke
Whether reflecting on the past, through derelict landmarks and absent friends, confronting present-day 'domestic dilemmas' with wit and good-humour, or looking to the future through the eyes (and extraordinary energies) of her grandchildren, Norah remains unswervingly honest, entertaining and inventive. 'Love Letters & Children's Drawings' is poetry at its very best – constantly insightful, compelling, and essential.
