Description

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

* 2011 TED speaker (recording has been viewed 3 million times online)
* First book, B was ranked #1 Bestselling Poetry Book on Amazon
* Featured on HBO, American Public Radio, Huffington Post, CNN.com
* Founder and Co-Director of Project VOICE

Following the success of her breakout poem, B, Sarah Kay, in collaboration with illustrator Sophia Janowitz, released her debut collection of poetry featuring work from the first decade of her career.

Forgive yourself for the decisions you have made, the ones you still call mistakes when you tuck them in at night

No Matter the Wreckage presents readers with new and beloved poetry that showcases Kay's talent for celebrating family, love, travel, and unlikely romance between inanimate objects (The Toothbrush to the Bicycle Tire). Both fresh and wise, Kay's poetry allows readers to join her on the journey of discovering herself and the world around her. It is an honest and powerful collection.
