Pulitzer Prize winner Kay Ryan returns with an all-new full-length collection of poems. “Witty, rebellious, and yet tender, [her poetry is] a treasure trove of an iconoclastic and joyful mind” (Pulitzer Prize citation)

Erratic Facts, Kay Ryan’s first collection since the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Best of It, offers sixty-plus new examples of her swift, lucid style. Ryan examines enormous subjects with compact poems in which sly rhymes and syncopation lend an off-foot musicality to unnerving wisdom. These poems demonstrate the same quick-fire brain-work that has animated her verse for the last thirty years, in ways more daring than ever.
