New Taste Essay in Poetry Northwest!

| Taste: A Book of Small Bites

My next nonfiction book, Taste: A Book of Small Bites, is forthcoming from Columbia University Press in August 2022. The book looks at the sweet, the sour, the bitter, the salty, and umami through an interdisciplinary lens, considering the ways that taste informs poetry and fiction, theater, film, opera, philosophy, and religion. You can read more about Taste here.

In the meantime, one of the essays that appears in Taste has just been published in Poetry Northwest. I know writers aren’t supposed to have favorite children, but I admit that “Such Hints of Honey” is one of mine. You can read the essay here.
