AN ACCLAIMED COLLECTION: Jana Prikryl’s first books of poems, The After Party, was named a Best Poetry Book of the Year by The New York Times and received an appreciation by Dan Chiasson in The New Yorker, as well as plaudits from John Ashbery, Charles Simic, David Orr, and many others.
A WELL-CONNECTED AUTHOR: Through her new role as the poetry editor of The New York Review of Books, Prikryl has a wide network of poets, writers, reviewers, and editors ready to champion her work.
REFLECTING TODAY’S REALITY: No Matter viscerally evokes what it’s like to live as a woman in urban America, in an era of social upheaval and when day-to-day experience seems completely at odds with the catastophes unfolding all around us.
Praise for The After Party
“Remarkable…Unusually vivid… Brilliant and funny…A sensory autobiography that examines tragic material with a friendly scrutiny…Language in this enchanted book sometimes seems to have an independent intelligence.”—Dan Chiasson, The New Yorker
“Prikryl’s debut is a gratifying demonstration of (among other things) the warmth and wit of poetry’s formal architecture.”—David Orr, The New York Times
