Midnight Feasts: Tasty Poems

Author: A F Harrold
Illustrator: Katy Riddell
Publisher: Bloomsbury

Drawing on a rich and broad range of writers, classic and modern, poet A.F. Harrold has crafted a poetry anthology that celebrates every facet of food culture and allows us to reflect on the considerable ways in which our relationship with food influences, impacts and builds humanity around the world. And while the poems range from the deeply moving to the nonsensically humorous, the collection is ultimately full of warmth and empathy. This is further facilitated by Katy Riddell’s accompanying illustrations providing each poem with her own response and reflection to the anthology which are full of playful and relatable characters and moments. A delicious and quirky collection of poems old and new, skilfully curated and perfectly paced.
