Poetry. Kocot makes a bold departure from her previous works with this collection. Written in the third-person, they are by turn funny, flippant, insane, sad, and deeply moving. Her most accessible work to date, THE BIGGER WORLD shows the range of Kocot's talent and will likely appeal to a broad audience, while maintaining her signature linguistic style.
