Looking back at a dysfunctional childhood and a mother who lived a life always on the verge of destruction, the narrator of this sequence wonders how, when there are so many reasons not to, love still exists even in the worst of circumstances. By poet and writer Patricia Debney, Baby is a searing, deeply disturbing work, filled with pain and anger, and yet, ultimately, it affirms the old adage that blood is thicker than water.

A compelling third collection, Baby is as quick to illuminate as it is to enshadow. Debney's unique organisation of fragments, prose poetry and white space, mirrors with a precise and unflinching hand the stuff of life at its most human; that which stays, returns and then vanishes.
