The acclaimed second collection of poetry by Patricia Lockwood--a New York Times Notable Book SELECTED AS A BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR: The New York Times * The Boston Globe * Powell's * The Strand * Barnes & Noble * BuzzFeed * Flavorwire

Read Lockwood's memoir, Priestdaddy, named one of The New York Times Book Review's 10 Best Books of 2017 Colloquial and incantatory, the poems in Patricia Lockwood's second collection address the most urgent questions of our time, like: Is America going down on Canada? What happens when Niagara Falls gets drunk at a wedding? Is it legal to marry a stuffed owl exhibit? Why isn't anyone named Gary anymore? Did the Hatfield and McCoy babies ever fall in love? The steep tilt of Lockwood's lines sends the reader snowballing downhill, accumulating pieces of the scenery with every turn. The poems' subject is the natural world, but their images would never occur in nature. This book is serious and funny at the same time, like a big grave with a clown lying in it.
