Wrong Norma is Anne Carson's first book of original material in eight years

'I would read anything she wrote'
SUSAN SONTAG

'If she was a prose writer she would instantly be recognised as a genius'
COLM T IB N

As with her most recent publications, Wrong Norma is a facsimile edition of the original hand-designed book, annotated and corrected by the author.

Anne Carson is probably our most celebrated living poet, winner of countless awards and routinely tipped for the Nobel Prize in Literature. Famously reticent, asking that her books be published without cover copy, she has agreed to say this-

'Wrong Norma is a collection of writings about different things, like Joseph Conrad, Guantanamo, Flaubert, snow, poverty, Roget's Thesaurus, my Dad, Saturday night, Sokrates, writing sonnets, forensics, encounters with lovers, the word \"idea\", the feet of Jesus, and Russian thugs. The pieces are not linked. That's why I've called them \"wrong\".'
