Reviews

"String is a stirring bravura performance, a love song and a song of war, a chronicle of damage, a testament to our capacity for perseverance."--Michael Dumanis
"Matthew Thorburn's String is a harrowing and tender unraveling of trauma, in which the brutal (dis)memberments of war are (re)membered through the point of view of a young boy. Here, string functions as mending, as artful stitching of the liminal--both a doing and an undoing, a narrativization of erasures through stories that are both silenced and then sung."--Lee Ann Roripaugh
"No book has moved me as much as String, epic in scope but intimate as a lullaby. These poems remind us that life is not about the wish our hope makes as we toss a coin; it's not that one side of the coin is despair and one side joy; it's the constant flipping of the coin as it falls and the music it makes ringing against the sides of the empty well."--Rhett Iseman Trull
