Here’s Looking at You Kid
Published by Valley Press
These ‘requested poems’ have been brought together for Here’s Looking at You Kid, the long-awaited follow-up to Helen’s much-loved first volume The Ruby Slippers. Readers will discover the secrets of ‘hospital lingo’, find out why dogs are so especially kind, learn how to handle mothers who are at ‘that difficult age between 81 and 81-and-a-half’, and the lurid details of ‘what they found in the poet’s stomach’. The collection also features the return of Helen’s charming notes on each poem, and an introduction by the author – ‘why I (still) write’.
