Lana Del Rey September 29, 22 Hardcover 128 pages 4-C throughout; b&w printed endpapers 21.3 cm H | 14 cm W | 1.5 cm T | 285.8 g Wt Poetry / American The New York Times bestselling debut book of poetry from Lana Del Rey, Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass. “ Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass is the title poem of the book and the first poem I wrote of many. Some of which came to me in their entirety, which I dictated and then typed out, and some that I worked laboriously picking apart each word to make the perfect poem. They are eclectic and honest and not trying to be anything other than what they are and for that reason I’m proud of them, especially because the spirit in which they were written was very authentic.” — Lana Del Rey Lana’s breathtaking first book solidifies her further as “the essential writer of her times” ( The Atlantic ). The collection features more than thirty poems, many exclusive to the book: Never to Heaven, The Land of 1, Fires, Past the Bushes Cypress Thriving, LA Who Am I to Love You?, Tessa DiPietro, Happy, Paradise Is Very Fragile, Bare Feet on Linoleum , and many more. This beautiful hardcover edition showcases Lana’s typewritten manuscript pages alongside her original photography. The result is an extraordinary poetic landscape that reflects the unguarded spirit of its creator. Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass is also brought to life in an unprecedented spoken word audiobook which features Lana Del Rey reading fourteen select poems from the book accompanied by music from Grammy Award–winning musician Jack Antonoff.
