It was a huge honour to be featured in the recommendations on the finale of The High Low yesterday. Listening to the gorgeous review and to Pandora reading both ‘Hiraeth’ and ‘Kernel’ was really very special.
Here is the extract:
Reflections on motherhood and family, miscarriage, pregnancy and life with a newborn in lockdown, parenting, homeschooling and the missing loved ones.
The poems mean a lot to me and it was lovely to hear them over the airwaves. I wanted to extend a heartfelt thank you to both Pandora Sykes and Dolly Alderton for having ‘Tiny Lungs’ on there, and to all those who have been in touch subsequently with messages and to those who have bought the book. It’s no understatement to say being included has had quite an impact and I’ve been thrilled by the support for the book. Pandora and Dolly are extremely supportive of others, particularly championing the work of other women – things like that go a long long way, they really pay it forward. Pandora bought copies of the book for herself, which she didn’t have to do, and for others, which I think was just brilliant. I’m really grateful to them both for the support and I can’t wait to hear what their next adventures will be. If you haven’t listened yet, it’s hilarious and nostalgic and wonderful 💜💜💜
You can buy the book here, thank you x
