*'The Republic of Motherhood' Winner of the Forward Prize for Best Single Poem*

‘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 her distinctive voice to the transformative experience of new motherhood. Her poems sing the body electric, from the joy and anguish of becoming a mother, through its darkest hours to its brightest days. With honesty and unabashed beauty, they bear witness to that most tender of times – when a new life arrives, and everything changes.
