These are very short pieces, more prose poems than stories and there is a lot in very few lines. To savour and not to gobble.

A wonderful little prose work by a respected L.A. poet. Maybe it's "quirky memoir." Maybe it's prose poetry. Maybe it's food writing. All I know is that it's a collection of short-form memoirs (most a page or less) centered around food but written by someone who sort of hates food, or at least sitting at the table. When first asked to write a food column for a lit. mag., she protested: "But I hate food." Their response? "That's why you'd be perfect." My kind of food writing. I keep telling people about this book and so far no one has heard of it--the same thing used to happen when I brought up her L.A. cohort, D.J. Waldie, whose "Holy Land" is an American classic. ( )
