The Salt Daughter
Ships in 3-5 business days
The Salt Daughter takes us on a journey through the secret kitchen of an American family. This daughter is no shrinking violet. Like Alice in the well, she swims through spoilt milk, soup, wine, rotten eggs and ice cream. She is the dark bud on a head of cabbage, the burnt patch in the pot of soup, the cotton candy under the nails of a fighter. In turning back to see mother, father and siblings, The Salt Daughter is sea water and chloride, cathartic and acid. Hamm's brilliant collection resounds with the force of a fairy tale.
