Eat Quite Everything You See: Poems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Reading Miller's poetry has been likened to obtaining tickets to exotic places both real and imagined. In Eat Quite Everything You See - the fourth collection of her verse - she offers a wry and compelling series of wanderings through the ever-changing landscapes of Europe. With an inquisitive spirit and a generous sense of humor, Miller investigates the experience of otherness in a foreign land, exploring also the phenomena of human culture, womanhood, independence, desire, and love.

Synopsis:

Leslie Adrienne Miller's poems have often been described as tickets to exotic places real and imagined. In this fourth collection, she journeys to France and views humanity and culture as a visitor, an outsider. Willing to step outside the familiar, and equipped with an inquisitive spirit and generous sense of humor, Miller offers keen insight into the larger questions of contemporary womanhood: independence, desire, and love.
