Publisher Comments:

As three worlds collide, a mother's Philippines, a father's India, and the poet's contemporary America, the resulting impressions are chronicled in this collection of incisive and penetrating verse. The writer weaves her words carefully into a wise and affecting embroidery that celebrates the senses while remaining down-to-earth and genuine.

Review:

"In these fine and searching poems, Nezhukumatathil pushes and grabs at the world, wanting more and striving to name what cannot be named. As she does we see that everything is in fact miracle fruit, including this book itself." Andrew Hudgins

Review:

"Aimee Nezhukumatathil is able to handle serious subjects with the lightest of touches. Her edgy humor and keen eye keep her poems buoyant and fresh." Billy Collins, U.S. Poet Laureate

Review:

"Aimee Nezhukumatathil's delightful poems celebrate the glories of the tongue, in both senses of the word. I can think of no other poet — except Neruda — who has inscribed the sensual world with such accurate charm....Aimee Nezhukumatathil understands the loving and funny relations between mother and daughter. She understands the folkways of India and Ohio, and she might be the only American poet who can swear in Tagalog. Her poems are seriously delicious: toothsome and saucy, wise and mischievous." Alice Fulton

Review:

When language, sensory experience, and imagination meet and mingle in an inventive and convincing way, we have the ingredients for those moments of grace that characterize important poems. Aimee Nezhukumatathil's Miracle Fruit is rich in such luscious moments. Every line is alive with the excitement of what can be known about the world, every poem bursting with an eagerness to share it." Gregory Orr, Judge, Second Annual Tupelo Press Poetry Competition
