Poetry by Jordi Alonso
180 fragments inspired by the Greek poet Sappho, these poems are rich and enticing, laden with love for food, drink, and all things sensual.
“The words, so naturally right, each poem seems easy, a tune hummed on a walk. But it takes long brooding to produce work this good. That Alonso has achieved so much so early in his career makes one want to gasp. So I did, after which I sat back, closed my eyes, and gladly vanished in the music.” — Roger Rosenblatt, author of The Book of Love and Unless it Moves the Human Heart
