    About the book, from the jacket blurb:

    ‘The news’ can mean many things, but first and foremost in this
    collection the news is—We’re having a baby! Starting in the fifth
    week of his wife’s pregnancy, Rob Taylor wrote a poem every week as
    they traveled toward their child’s birth. His poems anticipate the
    astonishing and yet commonplace beginning of a human life, but they
    also explore how a baby’s arrival streams into both the incessant
    chatter of the world’s daily news and into that other sort of news
    that literature carries—what Ezra Pound called “news that stays
    news”.
