In this, her second anthology of poetry, Maggie Nelson experiments with poetic forms long and short as she charts intimate landscapes, including the poet’s enmeshment in a beloved city—New York—before and after the events of 9/11. The poems of The Latest Winter are rich with wit, melancholy, terror, curiosity, and love.

“Nelson is one of the most electrifying writers at work in America today, among the sharpest and most supple thinkers of her generation.” — Olivia Laing
“Nelson’s poems move fast, think on their feet, hit and run with equal parts of humor; glamor, and horror. In every way, she is a thoroughly original voice for our time.” — Elaine Equi
