The World's Two Smallest Humans by Julia Copus

The World’s Two Smallest Humans

These finely tuned poems are the fruit of Julia’s upbringing in a musical family, an affinity with the Classics, a fascination with the arc of time, and an unflinching scrutiny of love and personal relationships. The book concludes with a moving arrangement of pieces that explore the author’s experience of IVF: poems written with wry humour and with grace, which celebrate the mysteries of conception alongside the sometimes surreal business of medical intervention. The World’s Two Smallest Humans is an unforgettable read.
