Best of It: New and Selected Poems
Best of It: New and Selected Poems | Kay Ryan
12 posts | 2 read | 4 to read
Kay Ryan's recently concluded two-year term as the Library of Congress's sixteenth poet laureate is just the latest in an amazing array of accolades for this wonderfully accessible, widely loved poet--her awards include the Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize from the Poetry Foundation, four Pushcart Prizes, and a Guggenheim fellowship. Ryan's The Best of It: New and Selected Poems has garnered lavish praise. The two hundred poems in The Best of It offer a stunning retrospective of her work, as well as a swath of never-before-published poems--all of which are sure to appeal equally to longtime fans and general readers.

Ruthiella What a great picture and so typically CAT: not on the tile not on the floor but precisely one the wood strip that separates them. I‘m so sorry you lost your cat family member. 💔 2y
Lcsmcat @Ruthiella We called him the edge cat - he loved to be right on the edge of anything: rugs, piano bench, chair. As a kitten he would sometimes fall asleep on and edge and fall off. 2y

Mentally I'm in a dark place and trying to read Woolf's diary isn't good for me. So, I'm taking my therapist's advice and switching to another book for my nighttime reading.
