Olds submerges readers in the wellspring of life as she evokes the wonder and the pain of sexual awakening, of giving birth, of watching one's children become adults, and of love in middle age. Always striking to the very heart of woman's experience and risking subjects seldom explored in poetry. Olds has found a large audience.

Review:

"Sharon Olds's poems are pure fire in the hands--risky, on the verge of falling, and in the end leaping up. I love the roughness and humor and brag and tenderness and completion in her work as she carries the reader through rooms of passion and loss."
--Michael Ondaatje
