"A truly moving book." --John Ashbery Jana Prikryl's The After Party journeys across borders and eras, from cold war Central Europe to present-day New York City, from ancient Rome to New World suburbs, constantly testing the lingua francas we negotiate to know ourselves. These poems disclose the tensions in our inherited identities and showcase Prikryl's ambitious experimentation with style. "Thirty Thousand Islands," the second half of the collection, presents some forty linked poems that incorporate numerous voices. Rooted in one place that fragments into many places--the remote shores of Lake Huron in Canada, a region with no natural resources aside from its beauty--these poems are an elegy that speaks beyond grief. Penetrating, vital, and visionary, The After Party marks the arrival of an extraordinary new talent.… (mere)

Nothing mind-blowing, Prikryl does use language well but worth the hype? Me not think so. ( )

Prikryl has some beautiful poems in this collection and some that leave the reader feeling a little "meh" about them. The first half of the collection contains those poems that are well-worded, thoughtful, and allow the reader to revel in Prikryl's imagery and phrasing. I have high hopes for this poet after reading those poems. The second half of the book, a stream of consciousness that is supposed to be connected, feels disjointed and underwhelming. ( )

Prikryl's collection of poems has a lot of potential. There were certain phrases that, in their perfection, I could only stop and ponder the lines before moving on. I wish that the entirety of the individual poems and in turn the collection of poems could continue with this genius. I look forward to a day in the future when I can pick up another one of Prikryl's books and be astounded by her growth.

However, when I first approached this work, I was slightly confused. Although there were those moments when I was refreshed by her wording - her phrases - but there were other times when her poems were completely beyond my reach. I hope this was not a flaw on my part. Perhaps the abrupt transitions factored into the quick mental shift that was needed to follow the progression of poems. Overall, I enjoyed individual pieces from this collection but was left with the want for something more.

The earlier poems in this collection are really good. I particularly liked "Ontario Gothic, "Argus, or Fear of Flying," and "To Tell of Bodies Changed" among others. The second half of the book reads almost like a disjointed stream of consciousness, and it didn't work as well for me. ( )

Excellent book for those who love poetry. Ms Prikryl writes cleverly and with wit. Things that may seem intolerable now are bearable when written in a poetic way. Her subjects are life and the landmarks they transverse.
"outside the funeral of the politician who died young I waited for you. Rolled in my hand lie a baton were tissues from the mourners inside that I was meant to throw away. A few with your scribbled notes to me" is a beginning of a poem that brings many thoughts and memories as one reads further on th page. Some are short, others are long; you will read each with a wish to go further and further into the book. I recommend this lovely book to anyone interested in relaxing with poetry. ( )
