The sold-out collection by Italian-American poet Jennifer Barone gets an updated Second Edition to be released by Feather Press, August 2017

Saporoso (Italian for “tasty”) – reads like a robust, Italian dinner menu. Jennifer explores, without abandon, the sensual nature of Italian culture, mythology, family, sex and love through Italian food and the natural, aphrodisiac quality of its ingredients. As she states in her poem, “it is no small thing to eat” – through making and sharing food, we find the basic thread of our humanity, connection to each other and ultimately an expression of love. This newly updated, Second Edition by Feather Press – includes three new poems, an additional section of the author’s family recipes and features the beautiful drawings of the artist Lam Khong.
