The Mailer Review


Max pulled his shoulders back to puff out his chest and said,
“Make it good, dad, and I’ll wear it to bed all the time.” Dave
clutched the bottom of the shirt to make the fabric taut and drew two
circles above the arc.

“You draw the kid a sad face?” Kelly stood in the doorway to
the kitchen. “What kid wants a shirt from their parent with a frowny
face?” She shifted her weight, raising her other hand in a stop sign,
“No wait. I think I want you to answer this instead, Dave … what
kind of loser wants to draw on their kid’s clothing, and, number two,
then have it be a sad face? Really?”

Friday, May 6, 2011 @ Dixon Place, 161 Chrystie Street

Poet Paul Violi died April 2, 2011, leaving many New York City creative writing students mourning their beloved professor. Those who wished to hear Violi’s work and share memories were invited to this free, public event.

Paul Violi wrote eleven books of poetry, including Overnight, Fracas, The Curious Builder, Likewise, and Breakers, a selection of his longer poems. Widely published and anthologized both in the U.S. and abroad, he received two National Endowment for the Arts fellowships in poetry as well as many other arts grants throughout his prolific career. Recipient of the Morton Dauwen Zabel Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters (2001), and the John Ciardi Lifetime Achievement Award in Poetry (2004), just to name a few, Paul Violi’s work continues to resonate.
