I enjoyed this wonderful book of fungi-inspired poems. Like mushrooms themselves, the poems took on various shapes, colors, rhythms and habitats. I found the bios at the end really interesting as they provided nice info on the poets. The authors/editors of this book are connected to both FUNGI Magazine and the Telluride Mushroom Fest, so you know the source is authentic. If you’re interested in the natural world, fungi and a nice mix of poetry styles, this poetry book is for you.
