From the Back Cover
"Sarah Kay is a fearsomely open and generous talent. In this collection she will give you moments so intimate and beautifully rendered you will come to know them as your own. An unalloyed joy from beginning to end."--Lin-Manuel Miranda, Tony Award-winning composer-lyricist of Broadway's In the Heights
"Nowhere have I found such humble honesty laced with such beauty. Nowhere, such boundless grace. Sarah Kay writes with a particular and rare magic, evoking emotions we may have forgotten we possess. No Matter the Wreckage is both spare and dense, uproarious and healing. An enchanting collection, imbued with courage, wisdom, lament, and triumph."--Jeanann Verlee, Author of Racing Hummingbirds

Top Customer Reviews
There are, also, poems describing female liberation; from gender stereotypes, from relationships that did not work, from ideas about how a woman is supposed to live. There is a sincerity and quiet feminism in the poems pertaining to the author’s encounters with men. She approaches the situations from a place of wonder and hope: this is most readily displayed in The Type. Overall, this collection is a lovely read and brings much pause for reflection. It is not the type of collection to speed read or gloss over; but, perfect for a late Spring day in the shade of an oak tree. I highly recommend this book for those who feel apprehensive towards poetry and those who want to expand their knowledge of young poets.
