What the Truth Tastes Like free pdf Martha Silano's new book "What The Truth Tastes Like, " (Two Sylvias Press, 2015) is a second edition of her original, award-winning collection published in 1999. This revised book includes twenty new poems, a Foreword by David Kirby, and an Afterword by Martha Silano. Praise for "What The Truth Tastes Like: " From clear-eyed attention to the ordinary world, Martha Silano makes poems that instruct, startle, and give pleasure as only a great poem can. -David Kirby Martha Silano reveals that she invented the perpetually grieving Linzer torte and the self-effervescing catbox lid and I believe her. Her poems are full of good stuff-sausages and Oklahoma villages and dreams of parrots. Even when love has gone sour and the lover has gone south, the energy and inventiveness never flag. We know she'll be right back, offering more truthful tastes. Take a big bite, this is a strong first serving. -Robert Hershon Martha Silano writes with wit and intelligence, and she is equally at home naming the birds on a beach and the arcana of the yellow pages. It is her love of language that distinguishes these poems and makes them so full of startling awareness, and this not only at the level of the word, but also in the syntax, which reveals the mind's continual approach and avoidance of its emotional home. -Alison Hawthorne Deming The truth tastes like these succulent poems. Their refrains will form on your lips and ring in your heart. In these rich, elegant--and wickedly witty--pieces, Martha Silano has captured the rhythms that percolate, unheard by the rest of us, just beneath the surface of everyday life. -Laura Kalpakian
