No Matter

An urgent, visionary collection of poems from the author of The After Party Jana Prikryl's No Matter argues for the necessity of vision in a time of darkness.

I struggled with reviewing this book because poetry speaks to different people in different ways. Ultimately, though, it wasn't my cup of tea.Disclosure: I received a free copy of this ...
