Poetry at the Post: Sipping a Negroni in Sorrento

In the Grips of a Sickness Transmitted by Wolves
BY MONICA FERRELL

Sorrento, at night the long fingers of your orange lights
Prick me in the sizzling streets, where the pinnacles
Of other people ring tinny and papier-mâché…

I’ve been drooling this week over the reissue of a special edition by epicurious on the food and wine of Italy. Not only are there great photos. recipes and regional info, but there is a list of restaurants and cafes to try when traveling—including links to their websites, like the Fauno Bar in Sorrento which according to epicurious writers is a good place to sip on a Negroni as you wait for your ferry to Capri (and read a poem by Monica Ferrell.)
