Larger hungers

Some of the poems are about the hunger

we have for real food, but others are about

the larger hungers — our need for love,

for sex, family, success, the past.

These hungers are a kind of longing.”


For 3 Good Books, I asked Diane Lockward — author of four poetry books, including What Feeds Us, and a blog called Blogalicious — to share her favorite books on the theme of food.

When we read, creativity stirs. And when we create, our lives expand.

See you at 3 Good Books.
