"Her sixth book [Blood, Tin, Straw] is without doubt her strongest... Olds' trademark has long been her astonishing candour... and this quality is firmly in place here, but she has added to it a new strength and lyricism of metaphor and image. The shock she delivers is that of true poetry" (Library Journal)
"Olds has always been a daring poet of the flesh, but now in Blood, Tin, Straw, a major work, she embraces the entire universe... Olds writes more forthrightly about female sexuality - the hunger, blood, tensility and heat of it - than any of her sister poets. This collection is poetry as memoir, mined from the very core of her being" (Booklist)
"Olds remains too little-known in the UK... readers new to her will be astounded" (Independent)
"Sharon Olds' poems are pure fire in the hands... I love the toughness and humour and brag and tenderness and completion in her work as she carries the reader through rooms of passion and loss" (Michael Ondaatje)
