Book Description

Violet comes the park every day to write in her journal. Often she is there alone with only the old French accordion player. As her curiosity grows about the musician she is eventually lured back to his apartment, where she learns what solace lonely souls can find in each others arms.


“Merci. Pardon, you are always here and so am I. We should introduce. What is your name?” he asked in English that was far more broken then she had imagined it being.

“Violet,” she said, trying not to be meek but still sounding like a whisper.

He repeated it and it sounded prettier from his cracked lips. Vie-oh-let.

He held out a hand in a worn gray fingerless glove. His fingers were dirty and yellow from cigarettes and playing. She took his hand and he pulled hers to his mouth and kissed it, his lips warm and his stubble rough on the back of her hand. Violet pulled her hand back and then wondered if she had done it a little too quickly. She didn’t want to be rude to the man.

When he had said her name he had given her a very particular look. It wasn’t exactly a nice look. It wasn’t the look musicians in a park usually gave Violet. She remembered many times walking through Central Park with her parents and passing the saxophone player and his kind smile. The little jazz trio and their warm thanks when she flipped a quarter into their trumpet case. This was a very different smile and Violet realized it was because she wasn’t a little girl skipping through the park anymore, as much as she felt like one.

She smiled back weakly and went back to her bench to read her book, suddenly uncomfortable being the focus of his attention.
without looking at her.

There was silence, again, and he wondered if he had gone too far. Then he heard her shuffling feet and turned enough to see her standing in front of his desk, pushing her white underwear down to her knees and then leaning forward on his desk.
