9781590207512: It's Not You, It's Me: The Poetry of Breakup

Award-winning poet Jerry Williams is an expert in breaking up, and he credits his survival to the careful words of poets who have loved and lost before him.

It's Not You, It's Me is a poetry anthology--at once amusing, angry, sweet, and bitter--that gives a fresh voice to the all-too-familiar experience of ending a relationship. Williams compiled over 90 poems by contemporary writers including Denis Johnson and Kim Addonizio, as well as former poets laureate Robert Hass, Maxine Kumin, and Mark Strand, whose comforting and healing words dragged him out of his breakup-induced depression.

We have all been through a breakup, but these poems have created an art out of heartbreak: sharing their wisdom on the pain of the flip side of romance, and poking fun at the mess we become at the mercy of love.

Review:

"This collection . . . gathers many of the poems that have helped Williams (a poet himself, with two books to his name) through his rooms of anguish over the years. Happily, they're pretty great." — The New York Times

"A fine new anthology . . . featuring terrific poets . . . Williams is as good a prose writer as he is a poet. Get hold of this guy's stuff and read it." — Entertainment Weekly
