Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

In this absorbing poetic memoir of her early life, Cilla McQueen, one of New Zealand's major women poets, leads us over the stepping stones of childhood memory, some half submerged, some strong and glinting in the light of her wit. With humor and openness, clarity and grace, the memoir continues through her teenage years and the excitement and turbulence, the expansion and vulnerability, of university days and early motherhood in the 1960s and 1970s. This account of the life of an extraordinary verbal artist is immensely warm and welcoming.

A memoir in verse form.
