With Girl by the Water, award-winning poet Gary Geddes brings together a collage of stunning narratives which comprise “Girl by the Water,” and “Mao, Dreaming.” Conflict and struggle in places ranging from the Yukon to Chernobyl to China, Guatemala, Hamburg and Quebec are linked with lyrics about family relationships, gun control, the farm crisis and other issues that affect people all over the world, resulting in a collection of poetry that succeeds in being both global and intensely ­personal.
