The Next Hunger
Kimberly Cloutier Green

2013 • 96 pp. 6 x 9"

$16.00 Paperback, 978-0-87233-162-4

Lyric meditations on the longings and losses that drive us into each other’s arms or put us on our knees

The title of this lovely and masterful collection, The Next Hunger, refers to the spiritual hunger that grows out of a “world of craving.” The lyric forms of these poems shift and change as the poet traces the links between the beautiful and tragic, the grace-filled and desolate, in all our daily devotions—the apprehension of Mystery in every worldly thing leading, finally, to self-forgetfulness.

Reviews / Endorsements

The Next Hunger is the perfect title for this exceptional first book, for two reasons: 1) She’s not writing about lunch, and 2) It is, all at the same time, a book of human yearning, a book of gratitude, and a book of joy; these poems are made things, and they sing songs I’ve never heard before, and they’re splendidly sung.”—Thomas Lux
