This collection of poetry deals with the domestic life of a family, mother, father, and two small children, and in particular about the grueling experience of eczema from which the little girl suffers. Told from the mother’s point of view and set amid moves of house, the pressures on a bicultural household, and endless fruitless encounters with healers of many kinds, the poetry turns into a moving and profoundly recognizable picture of the strains, anxieties, fatigue, and desperation of parenthood.

About the Author:

Anne Kennedy is the author of Musica Ficta, A Boy and His Uncle, and the short story “Jewel's Darl.”

Review:

“Eczema-daughter, eczema-mother, who could have imagined a more unlikely subject for a collection? But what a moving, engaging, almost heart-stopping progress it is. A first reading is likely to be fast to find out the outcome. A second reading shows that life was going on all the time.”  —Elizabeth Smither, New Zealand Poet Laureate
