   Tiphanie Yanique’s Wife is a domestic panorama that hovers in a netherworld between anchored narrative and fantastic suspension. The poems manifest the female body as an object of transgression, as possession, as slave, and as denigrated flesh “no more than a pail of water.” Perhaps most exhilarating is the inherent autogenesis of female voice, a perpetual insistence on self-creation with which the speaker transcribes the body, the “space where she cannot exist,” as a soulful apparition that is an “island” as well as a “nation” where detail want prevails. Here, desire permeates a world where masculinity is “ a pistol,” and where “ God is broken” Yanique is a talented writer whose spelling-binding language offers the reader an experience  of transformation and song.
