[Michael McFee;] -- A companion to the contemporary North Carolina fiction anthology "The rough road home" (), this book provides a substantial sampling of the recent bounty in North Carolina poetry. Dan Jurafsky's book, The Language of Food: A Linguist Reads the Menu, is a wonderful, informative read that takes a serious look at the words and phrases we use everyday to describe our food.
