Jamie Givens tempts one to feast on bites of apples and slices of mangoes. Flavored with lyrical jazz overtones, Givens' award-winning poetry seduces the etheric spiritual to merge with all things natural. She reveals glimpses of the American West with stories about wandering in the desert, dancing with cowboys, and her first horse. In the "Fresh Produce" section, Givens treats the reader by supplying the subject matter behind each poem. Included in this collection of writings are poems from her first self-published chapbook, Recent Recollections: Tales from the Recorded Journey. Jamie Givens' approachable style whets the appetite and leaves the senses pleasantly satiated.
