It explores diverse modern and ancient worlds in life, the mind, coasts, trees and month by month by Mrs Uomo in her Yearbook, as she waits for a hospital operation, reads her dictionary or teaches her cat from the home course in economics.
Several of her poems have been set to music, most recently the title poem of City Fox with music by James Harris and recently launched on Amazon.
