More than Bread
A book for... The dreamer and the realist The skeptic and the believer. The seeker and the sought.
In her debut collection of poetry and prose, Marya Layth invites you to sit beneath the night sky with a girl who catches the attention of a star.
More than Bread boldly and whimsically explores the duality of human nature as poems interweave through the interaction between the unlikely pair -- revealing the story of a heart that aches, a heart that awes, a heart that wonders why...a heart like yours.
What readers have said
Marya Layth tells this story with the sort of wise and gentle voice that made me think of a Peter S. Beagle-inspired folktale. And her poetry demonstrates a timeless eloquence and wisdom. Seriously. So many of these poems read like classic literature.— Morgan Nikola-Wren (author of “Magic with Skin On”)
A lovely exploration of being human in a sometimes cruel world, and how sometimes, the cruelty comes from within— Amanda Linsmeier (author of “Like Waves”)
