A lovely book of poems to take your time with or like me when you find yourself with a cup of tea in one hand this book should be in the other.

She performs with confidence and charisma, which adds that extra bit of voice I found lacking in No Matter the Wreckage.That is what I was really puzzling over in this poem: how do I heal from something I did not actually witness? Because listeners of spoken-word poetry do not have the benefit of being able to sit and read and reread a poem, the poet is forced to make sure that their metaphors and imagery come through strongly and are not overly obscure. I am proud of the conversation it is engaging with and grateful that I can share it with folks through this book. If you have not seen Sarah Kay perform any of her poems, check her out on YouTube, she's a great performer). Description: Following the success of her breakout poem, "B," Sarah Kay releases her debut collection of poetry featuring work from the first decade of her career.

Poets as such are few and far between, and if this is what Sarah Kay has to offer in her 20’s I cannot begin to imagine what her life long career and future works will be like. Sarah is perhaps best known for her talk at the 2011 TED conference which garnered over 3 million online views. In Something We Don’t Talk About, Part I, Sarah manages to show honesty in domestic life and that every family has issues in their own way. Only so many into space, before you forget that words are sometimes used for things other than filling emptiness. On March 3, 2011, she performed at the TED conference in Long Beach, California as part of a series entitled "Beauty, Imagination, Enchantment.She is an education advocate and keynote speaker for education organizations like NAIS, ECIS, AISA, and IBO, among others. I also feel that the stories she was telling were very repetitive and didn't grab my attetion enough for me to want to continue reading, which was a shame.

If you are planning to read more poetry this reading year, I can tell you one thing for sure, Sarah Kay will not disappoint. the Literary Bohemian, DecomP, Damselfly Press, Union Station Magazine, Foundling Review, the Huffington Post, CNN. I highly think the connection between us is palpable, her words connect to me with too much precision. This book is only 130 pages, so it's short to begin with, but I managed to tear through the entire book in less than 12 hours because I just kept wanting to read the next poem and read more of Kay's amazing words.

She was a featured poet on HBO's "Russell Simmons presents Def Poetry Jam" in 2006, and that year she was also the youngest poet to compete in the National Poetry Slam. On the other hand I figured that the accessibility of the poems would make for far more enjoyable reading than most poetry books. I like how not all of her pieces stem from anger, or lust, or anguish; the emotional variety of this collection strengthens it. Reading through the poems (to myself and out loud to family members) I found that I could not quite capture all of the magic that Sarah has when she presents her poems.No Matter the Wreckage presents readers with new and beloved work that showcases Kay's knack for celebrating family, love, travel, history, and unlikely love affairs between inanimate objects ("Toothbrush to the Bicycle Tire"), among other curious topics.
