about this item

Poetry. Women's Studies. LGBT Studies. SALT IS FOR CURING is the lush and haunting full-length debut by Sonya Vatomsky. These poems, structured as an elaborate meal, conjure up a vapor of earthly pains and magical desires; like the most enduring rituals, Vatomsky's poems both intoxicate and ward. A new blood moon in American poetry, SALT IS FOR CURING is surprising, disturbing, and spookily illuminating."Sonya Vatomsky's SALT IS FOR CURING is many things: a feast, a grimoire, a fairy tale world, the real world. It's also too smart for bull****** and too graceful to be mean about the bull******: a marvelous debut. I love it."—Ariana Reines"Imagine bodies within bodies eating a feast, spilling over with their own secrets and hopes and dreams and fears and brutality and witchery. That is the party you will find in this book—a modern-day, literary equivalent of a Bosch painting."—Juliet Escoria"These poems melt the hard fat of life into tallow candles, then they reach up and light themselves."—Mike Young
