Full Mouth: Poems about Food (New Women's Voices #156) (Paperback)
(This book cannot be returned.)
"Amid the many delicious feasts contained in Full Mouth-ranging from caviar and oysters to donuts and dumplings-you'll find the "sweet improbable globes" of oranges, and the batter of funnel cakes wiggling "across a lake of boiling oil," expansive descriptions that insist on the transcendent experience that food can offer us. And what Eddy offers us here is a globe-trotting, memory-packed, omnivorous bounty of poems that interrogate appetite in all its forms. Through the full-mouth music of Eddy's language, this book explores family, intimacy, what nourishes and sates, and what it truly means to break bread."
