This review is from: The World's Two Smallest Humans (Paperback)
Wonderful, varied poems in this slim red book. They evoked real feelings of nostalgia and longing in me. I particularly loved An Easy Passage, which won the Forward prize. When I read it I remembered all over again how it felt to be young and on the precipice of life, and I immediately emailed it to friends I'd known since my school days in the hope that they'd remember, too. I found the 'Ghost' poems moving as well. If you or anyone you know has any experience of IVF I'm sure these will touch a cord. After reading the last poem I just sat for a while with the book in my hands, looking at the cover, thinking.
