A feast for the senses, Clayton’s debut chapbook explores the many ways families sustain and nourish each other. Here are poems offered as recipes for living, lip-smackingly good and warm to taste.
- Flora Cruft, author of I Am a Spider Mother
In this debut chapbook, poet Ellen Clayton explores the nature of families and how they operate and exist on a level that only those within them truly understand and appreciate. Drawing on traditions, memories and special occasions, Home Baked is a collection of poems that effortlessly and seamlessly blend homeliness, familiarity, sensuality and indulgence; its words look closer at those special moments that make us feel we truly belong — be it in the bath, in the playground or in someone’s arms — and places them into treasured moments to be devoured.
