Edited by poet Kevin Young, this book serves up a feast of poems for sampling, savoring, and double-dipping. As our most memorable meals often do, the poems span a range of feeling and experience: Readers can celebrate butter and family with Elizabeth Alexander, sing a drinking/love song with Keats, revel in picking blackberries with Mary Oliver, and slurp oysters (and guilt) with Seamus Heaney. Verse connoisseurs and social poetry-readers alike will find much to share with friends of both hungry and reluctant ears.
