Item Details

In this wise and intimate telling--which carries us through the seasons when her marriage was ending--Sharon Olds opens her heart to the reader, sharing the feeling of invisibility that comes when we are no longer standing in love's sight; the surprising physical bond that still exists between a couple during parting; the loss of everything from her husband's smile to the set of his hip. Olds is naked before us, curious and brave and even generous toward the man who was her mate for thirty years and who now loves another woman. -- Cover, p. [4]

Opinion

From Library Staff

Published years after the breakdown of her long-time marriage, this collection came about from the process of divorce.

It took her 15 years to publish the poems that came from the painful process of divorce. Raw and intimate.
