‘The news’ can mean many things, but first and foremost in this collection the news is?We’re having a baby! Starting in the fifth week of his wife’s pregnancy, Rob Taylor wrote a poem every week as they travelled toward their child’s birth. His poems anticipate the astonishing and yet commonplace beginning of a human life, but they also explore how a baby’s arrival streams into both the incessant chatter of the world’s daily news and into that other sort of news that literature carries?what Ezra Pound called “news that stays news”.
Finalist for the 2018 Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize.
