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

I was worried that in reading Sarah instead of hearing her might lessen the experience of her poetry, but I could clearly hear her voice as I read through the poems in this volume. What makes Sarah so great is not only the accessibility of her work, but the turns of phrases that immediately conjure an image you wish you had thought of. And you know exactly what she means. She can make you laugh out loud, touch you deeply and make everything seem like it's going to be OK. This is a solid series of poems from a young and exciting poet and I can't wait to see where she heads next.
I had the blessing of seeing Sarah Kay perform live in Chicago just recently. It was truly a breathtaking event, where I cried and I laughed. People stayed more than an hour after the show to just have the chance to shake her hand. I bought 5 copies of her book for my best friends - by far the best gift I could think of. If you are thinking of buying this book, or have the chance to see attend one of her performances, do not hesitate, she is truly awe-inspiring.
