Crunch by Anamaría Crowe Serrano, Turas Press, 2018


ISBN 978-0-9957916-2-6 

Anamaría Crowe Serrano’s remarkable experimental work pushes the boundaries of the poetic form in ways that invigorate and challenge readers to accompany her as she guides us through this garden of delights. With alternating pitch-perfect insight, deadpan humour and wit, Crunch revives old myths and breathes new life into deeply philosophical themes – the dynamics of knowledge and power, the nature of the self.

A daring and exciting work.

Poem from Crunch by Anamaría Crowe Serrano

“An heroic tale, the core of that old telling of Eve and Adam, with all the elements of a great story: desire, conflict, retribution…In this ‘memory of the garden’ Anamaría Crowe Serrano takes a bite out of life with a taunting sequence of poems that are intelligent and visceral, ‘the fruit/in her smile/saying it all.’               Keith Payne

” At a glance readers will take note of Crunch’s various font-sizes, graphic representations, concrete influences and spacing on the page …I appreciated the non-narrative sensibility… Crunch is an innovative collection, which tasks its readers to fully immerse themselves in this exuberant work.”

Julie Morrissey, Poetry Ireland Review 127.
