A landscape of acute memory and euphonious daily life, The Girl with the Green Violin delivers the raw and the cooked to readers. It is a poetry chapbook unmatched in its tender desire. Wright is an expert. When the speaker addresses a second person, it is we who feel its power. We salivate for each line before and after "You belong to me / Or at least the part of me // That makes you hunger." In each of these sixteen poems is sustenance and song.
