Ruth Silcock brings deft narrative skill, a sharp eye for the oddities of human behaviour, and compassionate humour to these poems about the neglected and the marginalized. The sequence "46 Nursing Homes" will speak directly and wittily to the heart of anyone who has tried to find appropriate care for an elderly friend or relative. Born in Manchester in 1926, Ruth Silcock studied English at Girton College, Cambridge, and later became a social worker, working with both adults and children.
