Faculty Publication: Mouth Full of Seeds

Sulak book

Professor Marcela Sulak has published a collection of poems, Mouth Full of Seeds, which Erika Meitner describes as:

. . . a fierce and tender hybrid memoir that is wholly unique to Sulak’s lived experiences as an academic, single mother, farmer’s daughter, translator, convert to Judaism, native of Texas, and immigrant to Israel. Weaving together lyric essays and poems, Sulak addresses big themes—time, feminism, motherhood, transformation, violence, spirituality, immigration, sense of place, and language itself—while rooting her poems in the corporeal and earthly details of childbirth, divorce, gardening, fairy tales, and even potatoes. “I can love almost anything,” writes Sulak in “Dear Honeysuckled, Dear Fire Department,” and we believe her as she renders the particulars of her worlds with riveting and exacting grace.
