Synopses & Reviews
Poetry. This eagerly anticipated second collection of elegant and exuberant poems from the award-winning author of MIRACLE FRUIt will charm and surprise. A calm and gentle wisdom wafts through Aimee Nezhukumatathil's sharp and unpretentious poetry, guiding the reader eloquently though physical and emotional scenery, shaping insight from a miscellany of images and emotions. Nezhukumatathil uses a dark and lovely natural world as a backdrop and elemental character in her poems. Here, worms glow in the dark, lizards speak, the most delicious soup in the world turns out to be deadly, and a woman eats soil as if it were candy. AT THE DRIVE-IN VOLCANO explodes with brazen charm, verve, and wit.
