From Heather Hartley, Paris editor of the literary magazine Tin House and finalist in the National Poetry Series, comes a highly-praised debut collection of poems—Knock Knock—unnerving, erotic and witty.

"Heather Hartley steps forth boldly and beautifully through this first published volume of her poems," writes Breyten Breytenbach, the South African poet and apartheid activist. "Her tread is light but sure and elegant. She reminds us that poetry can be…transformative."

"Full of appetite and steeped in European culture - it will make you want to book a one-way ticket to Paris or Naples,” Publishers Weekly remarks."By turns sexy and wry...Underneath the wit of Hartley's work, there is something probing, as if she is
seeking to lay the sad world bare."
