I’ve just received my contributor’s copy of Hunger and Thirst, an anthology of food literature edited by Nancy Cary and published by San Diego City Works Press. It’s a beautifully produced book, containing prose and poetry by the likes of Kim Addonizio, Denise Chavez and Barbara Kingsolver and I feel very pleased to have a poem included in it.
Here’s what the back cover blurb says:
‘The flavor of memory, the sensual and cerebral connection of food and love, and the universal instinct to sing the praises of what we eat and drink are celebrated in this collection. There are struggles here too. Starvation. Illness. Metaphorical hungers and thirsts. Stay awhile at the table. Cook up one of the recipes…’
