Elephant Rocks, Kay Ryan's third book of verse, shows a virtuoso practitioner at the top of her form. Appealing to a wide range of readers, Ryan's work reaches out both to those who wish to be invited into a poem and to those who insist on being persistently intrigued. Above all what distinguishes Kay Ryan as a poet is her flamboyant imagination and large ambition. She has embarked on a major poetic career, and this book confirms her as one of the most distinctive and attractive voices to come along in years.

display_description Elephant Rocks, Kay Ryan's third book of verse, shows a virtuoso practitioner at the top of her form. Engaging and secretive, provocative and profound, Ryan's poems have generated growing excitement with their appearances in The New Yorker and other leading periodicals. Sometimes gaudily ornamental, sometimes Shaker-plain, here is verse that is compact on the page and expansive in the mind.
