Putting the Boat to Bed
Published by Iron Press
This attractive pamphlet of poems is a partnership between a poet and an artist but also a mother (the poet) and a daughter (the artist). Deirdre Foster’s deceptively simple poems are complemented by Nikki Foster’s equally deceptively simple line drawings. Normal urban houses contains unpleasant secrets, a gentle luncheon gathering has dark undertones, a house clearance crystallises an act of grieving. One dozen poems. One dozen illustrations.
