When the Moon is Missing

This collection of posts published on sagesomethymes between 2012 and 2017 celebrates memories of an alienated childhood and explores the writer’s ambivalence towards her food heritage.

In a quest to reduce her ecological footprint, she forages suburban verges for wild chicory, harvests preserved tomatoes from her mother’s pantry and attempts to fill empty beer bottles with home-made wine.

A humorous narrative memoir about food, sex and citizenship presented in bite size episodes.
