Its narrative interweavings lead us from the world of books and romance into motherhood and its immersion in the world of children, then summon up, in turn, the poet's own childhood, and its barely recognised estrangements, 'the father that I did not know', and later a whole new family, to be reclaimed as her own. Dougan's poems are alive to the intimations which exist at 'the fugitive border of thought', and celebrate the imagination's power to mould, to recover, and to repair.' (Publisher's blurb) Artarmon : Giramondo Publishing , 2008 pg. 13-14
