"An intimate, comprehensive, imaginative view of a life, which also probes the relationships between poetry and creativity, mental fragility, love, marriage, and betrayal." (Booklist)
"Hemphill's verse, like Plath's, is completely compelling: every word, every line, worth reading." (The Horn Book Magazine)
