the most poignant and witty book i have read in years
on 31 August 2013
I thought this was such a beautifully-written, loving portrait of a remarkable woman and brilliant poet. Why do people not know her work today? This biographical work, with verses and lines from the poems embedded in it and with a good selection of them as an appendix, provides a superb introduction to her deeply troubled yet dignified life and work. What a discovery for me.
