About Regine Rousseau’s Searching for Cloves and Lilies: The Wine Edition
Rousseau’s work mixes short, sharp portraits of her friends and family with musings about her own experiences with love and loss. Providing an intimate glimpse into her life, Rousseau examines failed relationships and wonders at bad luck with romance. She writes odes to the men who abandoned her and those who stayed. She tells of deep loss and trauma but also the beauties of family, friendship and faith.
While the poems in this collection are striking on their own, The Wine Edition pairs each poem with a suggested wine to heighten your reading. Rousseau uses her experience as a sommelier to create experiences that flood the senses with a combination of words that are truly unforgettable.
This unique collection lays out which wine to pair with heartache and which best represents the state of modern relationships.
