Author Rosemary Biggio serves readers a delectable platter of "Crockpot Cooking"(published by Xlibris). An appetizing collection of prose and poetry, it invites readers to delight in the roux, seasoned with flavorful literary wit and style.
The book is dining experience offering morsels of creative nonfiction, short stories, historical fiction, flash fiction and poetry. A feast of experience boils within the pages of every featured story which explores various lives, groomed by the rough hands of fate. Meaty gobbets of character, a stock of old plots, snippets of dialogue and dashes of metaphor are mixed in a pot of prose and verse. From the folkloric corners of Arizona to the Amish hamlets in Pennsylvania, these recipes take readers to a scrumptiously diverse literary spice tour.
An excerpt from "Crockpot Cooking:"
No words passed between father and daughter. Heavy snow started to fall. Their footprints vanished as they walked. Darkness fell suddenly on Nunzio’s fortress. The snowflakes, like moths swirled around the streetlight. Tommy thought the line between civilization and frontier was blurry.
Offering a healthy selection of delish poetic cuisines, "Crockpot Cooking" invites everyone to a refined banquet of blissful literary indulgence from first page to last.
