The Skeleton Dance
We went to the pictures one bright afternoon,
Ruth Silcock brings deft narrative skill, compassionate humour and a sharp eye for the oddities of human behaviour to these poems about the neglected, the marginalized and the unnoticed. ‘46 Nursing Homes’ is a sequence which draws on her personal experience. It will speak directly and wittily to the heart of anyone who has tried to find appropriate care for an elderly relative or friend. Her book is a triumph of humour and humanity.
