At the Drive-In Volcano by Aimee Nezhukumatathil

Slide1.jpg
At the Drive-In Volcano” (Tupelo Press) is my book of color pick of the day. It is written by award-winning author, Aimee Nezhukumatathil, a mouth-full of a last name but a brilliant poet whose insights on how she sees the world are jarring yet refreshing.
One of my favorite passages is “When the Mother of the Greedy Boy Has Enough. In it, Nezhukumatathil tells a vivid story you can reach out and how touch is so tangible and accessible. You feel like you are watching a movie in your head, which all the greatest story-tellers have mastered.

More than a fast read, this is the type of book you’d like to sip on like hot tea or savor like a good wine.
