Can we teeter together, on the knife's edge of having and wanting In Blameless Mouth, Jessica Fox-Wilson asks this question, by exploring the cycle of hunger, consumption and satiety. The collection traces the poet's relationship with hunger from childhood to womanhood, uncovering what it means to feel forever wanting. Her work also considers the cultural legacy of hunger, through stories of starving children and hungry women, like Hansel and Gretel, Persephone, Eve, and others. Blameless Mouth illuminates the struggle of living daily with the contradictory pressures to want less but take more and searches for satiety in a culture that encourages insatiability.

    Jessica Fox-Wilson is a talented poet. Each of the gems in this volume can stand alone as a distinct yet powerful piece; however, when read as part of the compilation, each build on the others to create a singularly enjoyable piece. This book is filled with clear, vivid language that offers an original look at the issues of hunger, self, and want.
