Joan Webb’s anthology, Spilt Milk And Curdles is a controversial collection of poems presented in sections, as they relate to social values, and the author’s conviction that war is a travesty of human achievement.
Webb captures the reader with her inimitable wicked humour, as she interprets aspects of the family unit and other conventions. Her writing entertains with twists of humour in her deconstruction of familiar situations. This blend of fun, humour and passionate conviction make this powerful anthology one which challenges thought and touches the heart.
