The Royal Baker's Daughter

by Barbara Goldberg

Winner of the 2008 Felix Pollak Prize in Poetry, selected by David St. John These poems, at once elegant and earthy, reveal the inner workings of the human psyche and show us that sometimes the best defense against terror is making mischief. The Royal Baker's Daughterwas raised on a diet of stone soup and the occasional leftover royal treat. This leaves her with an appetite for authenticity. With nothing but her two deft hands to guide her, she embarks on a journey into the dark forest, "where sticks and stones and absolutes reign and nothing, even sin, is original. " Best Fall book from theMontserrat Review
