Description - Ants on the Melon by Virginia Adair

This singular volume of poetry is lush and accessible, and it presents intensely personal matters in technically brilliant verse. Adair's poems address her childhood, explore sensuality in candid terms and starkly treat her husband's suicide and her own blindness, using her own emotional history to explore the universal mysteries of the human condition.
