"Following a three-part structure that had been established by Paul herself in early notes towards a selected poems, Bernadette Hall gives us 76 luminous poems, most of which have never been published before. The poems track through from the 1970s, a scouring time for Paul with the disintegration of her marriage to the artist Jeffrey Harris, and the death of their infant daughter Imogen, to the late 1990s, a time of celebration and fulfilment. Through her own words we are given a unique insight into Paul's passionate engagement with life and love, with family, friends and community."--Jacket.
