In Cookhouse, Paula Green writes about her own life as a mother of three daughters and as a poet. She uses the metaphor of food, cooking and meals to represent the nurturing, caring experience of women and also the poet’s loving concern for language and fondness for others who have worked with words.
More about Paula Green
