An urgent, visionary collection of poems from the author ofThe After Party';One of the most original voices of her generation.'James WoodNAMED ONE OF THE BEST POETRY BOOKS OF THE YEAR BYTHE NEW YORK TIMES AND THE PARIS REVIEWJana Prikryl'sNo Matterguides the reader through citiesremembered and imaginedtoppling past the point of decline and fall. Conjured by voices alternately ardent, caustic, grieving, but always watchful, these soliloquies move from free verse through sonnets and invented forms, insisting that every demolition builds something new and unforeseen. In reactionary times, these poems say, we each have a responsibility to use our imagination.No Matteris an elegy for our ongoing moment, when what seemed permanent suddenly appears to be on the brink of disappearing.
