Wrong Norma

Anne Carson

Published here in a stunning edition with images created by Carson, several of the twenty-five startling poetic prose pieces have appeared in magazines and journals like The New Yorker and The Paris Review. As Carson writes: "Wrong Norma is a collection of writings about different things, like Joseph Conrad, Guantánamo, Flaubert, snow, poverty, Roget's Thesaurus, my Dad, Saturday night. The pieces are not linked. That's why I've called them 'wrong.'"

Praise for this book
Carson applies the habits of classical scholarship, the linguistic rigor, the relentless search for evidence, the jigsaw approach to scattered facts, to the trivia of contemporary private life.--Sam Anderson "New York Magazine"
She is one of the few writers writing in English that I would read anything she wrote.--Susan Sontag
I haven't discovered any writing in years that's so marvelously disturbing. I just feel so happy that she's around.--Alice Munro
Her work is full of moments of startling originality and beauty.--Colm Tóibín
