Eat Quite Everything You See: Poems

Leslie Adrienne Miller, Author Graywolf Press $14 (96p) ISBN 978-1-55597-365-0
Iowas Writers' Workshop graduate Leslie Adrienne Miller, currently a professor at the University of St. Thomas, moves to Graywolf Press for her third volume of poems. Aptly named, Eat Quite Everything You See is concerned with the various desires for sex, children, companionship and other ineffables. The force and lack of specificity of her needs drive the speaker across Europe, mostly through France, spurred by the Derridean epigraph ""What is at stake is an adventure of vision,"" telling new stories and retracing those from her past. These densely narrated quests wind around a center of loss, their complexity an attempt to avoid the fate of Miller's begonias: ""They'd grow anywhere, and they did... grew well in a stony place and were bright. When I turned them over, the spade found no roots."" (June)
