The Republic of Motherhood‘I crossed the border into the Republic of Motherhood
and found it a queendom, a wild queendom.’
In this bold and resonant gathering of poems, Liz Berry turns to the ‘transformative wild experience’ of motherhood. Her poems sing the body electric, from the joy and anguish of becoming a new mother; through its darkest hours to its brightest days. Full of solace, honesty and unabashed beauty, they bear witness to that most tender of experiences -- when a new life arrives, and everything changes.
