Publisher Comments:

Poet Martha Ronk notes that it is not so much that she finds food displeasurable, but that she finds the sitting at the table unpleasant. Moreover, food, for any woman, is associated with roles in the society that Ronk questions. Accordingly, the very process of writing about it becomes a sort of dialogue between society and between eating and reading, "a wrestling with dough or syntax, being at the table or under it". Ronk's startlingly fresh and often comic wrestling with food is a remarkable tour de force as she takes the reader through lemons, frozen hotdogs, oranges, raw eggs, artichokes, basil, red pepper strips, snails, rice, tortillas, eggs, cottage cheese, brandy, and many other products of the kitchen.

Synopsis:
