Kay Ryan has a wonderful way of taking ordinary, mundane things and exploring them with her word choice. She takes things and changes the ordinary into art. I can't help but smile when I read her poetry!

Ryan's powerful descriptive voice is on full display in this Pulitzer prize winning collection. Short but evocative poetry.

This is an excellent anthology of Ms. Ryan's innovative and imaginative work. I am a new reader of Ms. Ryan's work. I wonder how I missed her. The book very much impressed me.

Ryan's poems are like a delicious bowl of oatmeal and fruit for breakfast: simple and familiar at first, but with surprise twists, the poems tend to stick with you and nourish you throughout the day. A modern Emily Dickinson, in a slantendicular way. Compare "Success is counted sweetest" with Ryan's "Why We Must Struggle." I was a bit ambivalent about eReader formatting and poetry, but this book works perfectlly in an electronic format. I love having this anthology on my Nook so I can turn to one of Ryan's poems in odd free moments. I keep "New Clothes" bookmarked to read in checkout lines.
