Description

Cooking. Poetry. THE IMMIGRANT’S TABLE is a beautiful collection of poems and recipes, an odd pairing until you read how Mary Lou Sanelli has managed it. In the hands of this adept poet, these seemingly disparate elements flow together like pasta sauce and garlic, like Chianti and cheese. Sanelli introduces her reader to her family in the most Italian of settings: around a table. And in introducing her family, she also reveals those long-held family recipes for a great meal as well as those for a strong and lively family. “In this collection, Mary Lou Sanelli brings poems out of the ivory tower, straight to the family dinner table. No fast-food substitutes here, as the poet re-creates a culture in which food preparation is a cherished ritual. Sanelli’s clear-eyed, yet loving, awareness of family members’ foibles, including her own, provides the reader with a menu that nourishes both body and spirit, a gourmet treat for the imagination”-Madeline Defrees.

  1. Madeline DeFrees

    Sanelli’s clear-eyed awareness of family members’ foibles provides the reader with a menu that nourishes body and spirit.

  2. From former publisher, Jack Estes

    We’ve published Mary Lou Sanelli’s latest book just one year after publishing her earlier work, WOMEN IN THE GARDEN. We’ve chosen to do that for the simple reason that she writes quality poems and she connects to her readers. She has developed a following in the Northwest, and we’re feeling confident that the following will break out of that region and spread throughout the nation. Mary Lou Sanelli knows how to deliver a poem, both on paper and in person. And with this book, you’ll discover that she knows how to deliver a recipe, also.
