9780971031081: Miracle Fruit

Winner of the 2001 Tupelo Press First Book Prize selected by the award-winning poet Gregory Orr. 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. “...We see that everything is in fact miracle fruit, including this book itself.” -Andrew Hudgins

Review:

With a lovely, effective poem about elephants, a boat-shaped poem whereby ""The Bonsai Master's Daughter Breaks Her Silence"" and a ""Canticle with Sea Worm"" (""blessed be juice and raspberry vodka""), the Miracle Fruit of Aimee Nezhukumatathil's debut comes through in light bursts of clear sensuality and joy.
