Prayer Before Taking Nourishment by Diana Anphimiadi

Featuring: Diana Anphimiadi, Jean Sprackland, Natalia Bukia-Peters

Diana Anphimiadi quickly distinguished herself as an unusually imaginative, original talent in the Georgian poetry scene. Her work refuses the formulaic or expected response, wrong-footing readers with its wit and delicacy. In her acclaimed 2013 collection, Personal Cuisine, for instance, she explores the traumatic experiences of recent years, yet the narrative unfolds as a patchwork of recipes, poems and stories.
