No comments


Weaning the Babies
, a new collection of poetry by Literary Mama contributor Ann Neuser Lederer, has just come out from Pudding House. Related metaphorically to weaning, the book also integrates snippets of emails from Lederer's now 26-year-old son as codas, creating a shadow narrative.

Lederer's poem "Seeing Babies" can also be found in her Pudding House chapbook, The Undifferentiated (poems of illness and healing).
