According to the pubisher's Web site:
"Galactopoesis is the medical term for the continued secretion and production of milk. It derives from the Greek radicals for 'milk' (galacto) and 'making' (poesis), which is also 'poetry.' In Wet Apples, White Blood, nursing, as a constant creative act dependent on the baby’s demand, is a trope for the creative process and for questions of biology, psychology, and spirituality."
Guttman is also the author of Reasons for Winter, which received the A.M. Klein Award for Poetry and was shortlisted for The League of Canadian Poets' Pat Lowther Memorial Award.
