Paul Muldoon's 13th volume of poems, FROLIC AND DETOUR, is published by Faber and Faber on September 26th, 2019, and by Farrar, Straus & Giroux on November 19th, 2019


One of the world’s finest poets at his best. (Raul Nino, Booklist)

He has Donne’s baroque intellectual conceits, but also Byron’s ebullience in word-play… If you buy one book of poetry this year, make it this one. (Stuart Kelly, Scotland on Sunday)

For all his wit, Muldoon can still be deeply moving. (Tristram Fane Saunders, Daily Telegraph)

Muldoon’s longtime readers will be pleased with this latest addition to his oeuvre. (Publishers Weekly)
