Comfort Food

Author: Ellen van Neerven

I also saw those spirit dogs
and poetry travelled with me
like rivers
I didn’t ever eat alone
‘Goan Fish Curry’

Following on from the success of her award-winning fiction debut, Heat and Light, Ellen van Neerven announces herself as a talented poet with this assured collection.

Moving between places and cultures, Comfort Food explores identity, sovereignty and the restless quest for love. Using food as her inspiration, van Neerven offers a cross-cultural vision of the exotic and the familiar. This sensuous volume sets a new benchmark in contemporary Australian poetry.
