Publisher’s Synopsis (from its website)
Deanna Fong’s Butcher’s Block reflects on one’s emotional connection to fixed locales. Using the age-old conflation of food and sex as a vehicle, this collection of poetry negotiates consumption with wry language and poetic deftness, remembering the trail of people left behind when one balances a domestic and nomadic way of life.
