Description

In Mary Lou Sanelli’s sixth collection, the author shows, in poem after poem, just what place means to her: the people, the landscape, the gardens, the cafes, and, yes, the water. She does, indeed, crave the water. For Sanelli, rain, for which the Northwest is so well known, has a mission to revive and cleanse rather than to depress or sadden, and she learns, along with her readers, how to grow and to thrive in this notorious rain…And it’s about Sanelli’s sojourns away from her home, her trips to the mountains of New Mexico, to the islands of Hawaii, and down the long peninsula of Baja California, sojourns she makes which only intensify her love of the Northwest. You’ll come away from this book with a deep appreciation of this corner of America and, quite likely, with a longing to know your own home town and your own neighbors a little better than you do now.

2 reviews for Craving Water

  1. Linda Clifton, Director of the Puget Sound Writing Project, U of Washington

    “Sanelli’s deft images capture nuances of life lived close in a small town of neighbors on the western edge of America, and tell more, much more, about the intimacies of their lives.”

  2. B. Armstrong

    Mary Lou Sanelli did it again! Many times over the years, I have had one of her lovely poetry collections on my nightstand to savor a few readings before drifting off to sleep. I am currently savoring “Craving Water” while deciding which collection I will enjoy next! Always delightful, and almost always something I can relate to or at least enjoy her experience of a specific topic or situation.
