A follow-up to her number one New York Times bestselling and critically acclaimed debut poetry collection, What Kind of Woman, And Yet takes the themes of modern womanhood in all its beauty and overwhelm to the next level. In an increasingly isolating and divisive world, Kate calls us back together, challenging us to stand up, speak up, and take up space. Her words make us feel seen at a time when women are increasingly put upon and their attentions increasingly divided. As we add even more titles – teacher, emotional bedrock, stabilizer – to the ones we are already expected to carry – mother, partner, friend – Kate’s words build resilience, community, and understanding. Her poems are both cathartic and galvanizing. And her committed following of engaged readers knows this as they continue to share her words with their tribes on social media.
And Yetwill continue to bring Kate’s readers together, building on the topics of marriage, motherhood, and friendship by boldly showing us that now, at a time of collective unrest and hopelessness, we cannot give up on ourselves and each other. We have the power to persist and be the change we want to see. ‘Take comfort in your bold heart where hope and fear are mingling,’ she writes, her words inspiring us to action both at home and in the world at large.
