Mint Snowball. Poems.
by [Poetry] Nye, Naomi Shihab.

Publisher Information:
Anhinga Pr, Tallahassee: 2001.

A Fine copy in illustrated wraps of this paperback original; there was no hardcover edition. This collection of "poetry paragraphs" reprints some of Nye's "graphs" originally published in her 1991 chapbook "Mint" and adds several new ones. Nye's Mint Snowball playfully documents Nye's chance encounters with friendly cab drivers, smalltown restaurateurs and fellow travelers from Texas to Nepal. The title, harkening back to her great-grandfather's recipe for shaved ice and mint syrup, points to the author's effort to retrieve the refreshing particulars of the everyday histories of common people.
