Anmeldelser

«Sharon Olds explores her own experience with an intransigent honesty and fiery dignity. The reader might flinch at the intimacy, but Olds strikes straight out for the truth»

Rachel Campbell-Johnston, The Times

«Her best work exhibits a lyrical acuity which is both purifying and redemptive. She sees description as a means to catharsis, and the end result is impossible to forget... Her poetry is remarkable for its candour, its eroticism, and its power to move»

David Leavitt

«Olds remains too little-known in the UK...readers new to her will be astounded»

Kate Clanchy, Independent

«If any reading is 'essential', this is it»

Carol Rumens

«The attention to line, the superbly focused detail, the way her autobiographical detail strikes, shines, deepens, spreads: this, surely is the sound the confessional hordes have been trying to utter since Lowell, the right road that is missed so easily»

Glyn Maxwell
