From the publisher

In Odd Blocks Kay Ryan, the acclaimed American poet, presents her work to European readers for the first time. The book includes twenty-one new poems, seven of them first published here. Ryan's flamboyant imagination sparks in spare and elegant verse. 'Edges,' she has said, 'are the most powerful parts of the poem. The more edges you have the more power you have.' These poems take by surprise, and increase in resonance.
