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 1,000 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.

Walking Widowed; Reflections on a Loss

Walking Widowed; Reflections on a Loss

More Info

My journey began in the early morning hours of March 22, 2018 when my husband Lee died and took a part of me with him. That part was thirty-four years in the making . . . wife, companion, lover, and friend were wiped away, leaving only what felt like a shell of myself. Little did I know, at that moment, how painful the journey of grief would be, how far into the depths of despair it would take me, and what roads I would travel to find my way out of the darkness.

This collection of poems comes out of that journey. They chronicle the myriad of emotions one can experience after suffering a great loss-emotions that can initially tear a person apart, but can eventually help them to go forward and forge a new life with meaning and purpose.
