McNish, H: Nobody Told Me

Poetry and Parenthood, Nominiert: The Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry 2017

There were many things that Hollie McNish didn´t know before she was pregnant. How her family and friends would react; that Mr Whippy would be off the menu; how quickly ice can melt on a stomach. These were on top of the many other things she didn´t know about babies: how to stand while holding one; how to do a poetry gig with your baby as a member of the audience; how drum´n´bass can make a great lullaby. And that´s before you even start on toddlers: how to answer a question like ´is the world a jigsaw?´; dealing with a ten-hour train ride together; and how children can be caregivers too.

But Hollie learned.

And she´s still learning, slowly. Nobody Told Me is a collection of poems and stories taken from Hollie´s diaries, one person´s thoughts on raising a child in modern Britain, of trying to become a parent in modern Britain, of sex, commercialism, feeding, gender and of finding secret places to scream once in a while.

Rezension
The world needs these poems - and so does every parent . . . Interspersed with passages of spiky, penetrating prose, they offer a series of vivid snapshots of the highly emotional, frequently paranoid and always sleep-deprived experience of the first-time parent . . . The world needs this book. It should be required reading for anyone thinking of having a baby, or even anyone who knows someone who is thinking of having a baby. And I can't help wondering if these islands would be a happier and more pleasant place to live if Nobody Told Me was made a compulsory sex-ed set text in our schools . Politicians, please take note Scotland on Sunday
