The news can mean many things, but first and foremost in this collection the news isWere having a baby! Starting in the fifth week of his wifes pregnancy, Rob Taylor wrote a poem every week as they travelled toward their childs birth. His poems anticipate the astonishing and yet commonplace beginning of a human life, but they also explore how a babys arrival streams into both the incessant chatter of the worlds daily news and into that other sort of news that literature carrieswhat Ezra Pound called news that stays news.
