Angie Estes' Tryst was selected as one of two finalists for the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry. The selection committee said of Estes' book: "[Tryst is] a collection of poems remarkable for its variety of subjects, array of genres and nimble use of language."
Angie Estes is the author of four collections of poetry, including her most recent volume, Tryst. Stephen Burt, in The New York Times Book Review, writes that Tryst is "indelibly American": "Gleeful and gorgeous, Estes's fast-paced free verse, rich with internal rhyme, takes rightful pride in the beauties it flaunts and explains."
