About this product
- DescriptionThe Hill of Wool is a book about memories. Some memories live and grow in families. Some are inspired by rediscovered children's songs and stories. Others are triggered by chance encounters with old boyfriends. Sometimes personal and lyrical, sometimes jagged and strange like untamed children's rhymes, these new poems will delight Jenny Bornholdt's many readers.
