Sue Proffitt's remarkable second poetry collection is about living alongside her mother who was suffering from dementia.
The poems explore the nature of self, memory, identity and what it truly means only to exist in the present moment. There are few collections that cover this ground, and in such a way that the reader and perhaps other carers, might feel changed as a result, wiser, kinder, and as Proffitt hopes in her preface, ‘a little less alone.’
