Highlighting the wit and passion displayed throughout the career of
an acclaimed and masterly poet, Michael Ryan"s first
collection in fifteen years comprises fifty-seven poems from three
award-winning volumes and thirty-one brilliant new poems--poetry
that, as the New York Times Book Review said, "include[s] pain
and fear but also surprise, joy, laughter, everything human."
A welcome event for his fans, New and Selected Poems is also a
great opportunity for new readers to discover Ryan"s singular
voice and heart.
