Praise

A wonderful book, just, balanced, insightful, complex in its sympathies and in its judgment of Sexton both as a person and as a writer… a deeply moving account."– The New York Times Book Review

"Judicious and canny. [Middlebrook] appreciates both Sexton’s gifts as a poet and her attractive side as a human being…but looks at her destructive weaknesses with a steady eye." — Time

"Sympathetic but resolutely unsentimental … intelligent, sensitive, at times harrowing." — Joyce Carol Oates, Washington Post Book World
