Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A second collection from a poet of “sheer joy and dizzy command” (The New York Times)

Upon its publication in 2012, Alien vs. Predator, the debut collection by Michael Robbins, became one of the hottest and most celebrated works of poetry in the country, winning acclaim for its startling freshness and originality, and leading critics to say that it was the most likely book in years to open up poetry to a new readership.  

Robbinss poems are strange, wonderful, wild, and irrationally exuberant, mashing up high and low culture with “a sky-blue originality of utterance” (The New York Times). The thirty-six new poems in The Second Sex carry over the music, attitude, hilarity, and vulgarity of Alien vs. Predator, while also working deeper autobiographical and political veins.

About the Author

Michael Robbins was born in Kansas during the Nixon Administration. Some time later, he received his PhD in English from the University of Chicago. His poetry and criticism have appeared in the New Yorker, Poetry, Harpers, and many other publications. He lives in Chicago with the best cat in the world.
