Description

THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED 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.

Lana Del Rey is an American singer, songwriter, artist and poet. Violet Bent
Backwards Over the Grass is her first book.
