One of Hull’s most important modern-day poets, Norah Hanson has been delighting readers for decades with her honest, entertaining and inventive writing. Whether reflecting on the past, through derelict landmarks and absent friends, confronting present-day ‘domestic dilemmas’ with wit and good-humour, or looking to the future through the eyes (and extraordinary energies) of her grandchildren, Love Letters & Children's Drawings is poetry at its very best – insightful, compelling, and essential.
"Speaks to the reader's heart ... pure, practical and prophetic. A true poet."
— Deirdre McGarry
"Norah manages - perhaps because this book distils a lifetime of writing – to bring before us the tragedy of the human condition, making it sound beautiful and worth living through."
— Paul Sutherland
"Intelligent, compassionate and humane ... a treasure trove."
— Helen Burke
