Review quote

"Boland combines impeccable craft, resilient metaphors and, above all, moral authority in order to witness human difficulties. Critics already align her ideas with those of Adrienne Rich and Margaret Atwood, and I'd add Toni Morrison, Nadine Gordimer and William Gass." -- Jan Garden Castro - The Nation "One of Ireland's finest contemporary writers, as passionate and ambitious as Kenneally, as classical and meticulous as Heaney... This is profound moving work from a poet at the height of her powers." -- Booklist
