The Child pays close, intelligent attention to motherhood and art. It's written with memorable precision and love, and I was sorry to finish it
I loved this book, as raw and shimmering as the early nights of motherhood; through its poetic fragments and deep thought the wonder, fear and joy of intimacy shine
Liz Berry, author of, The Republic of Motherhood
Precise and careful, page after page of well-judged, unusual phrases that remain in the mind... Skomsvold writes with empathetic clarity on the sensibility of the artist.
