No Object
Natalie Shapero

2013 • 80 pp. 5 1/2 x 7 1/2"

$15.00 Paperback, 978-0-9833686-7-0

An unforgettable collection of funny and heartbreaking poems by a remarkable new voice in American poetry

“It is unbefitting to believe in ghosts, to believe what one reads,/what one writes,” writes Natalie Shapero in her mischievous debut collection. With sharp wit and relentless questioning, Shapero crafts poems a reader can, if not believe in, then trust—to level with us, to surprise us, and to stay with us long after we put the book down. No Object is a fast ride you will not easily forget.

“Shapero fastens you in a roller coaster car that creeps up a rickety hill, zooms into an abyss, then flips upside down to deliver you safely, wanting to take the ride all over again.”—Denise Duhamel

NATALIE SHAPERO has worked as a civil rights lawyer and a teacher, and is currently a fellow with The Kenyon Review. Her poems have been published in Poetry, FIELD, The New Republic, and elsewhere.
