In this wise and intimate telling--which carries us through the seasons when her marriage was ending--Sharon Olds opens her heart to the reader, sharing the feeling of invisibility that comes when we are no longer standing in love's sight; the surprising physical bond that still exists between a couple during parting; the loss of everything from her husband's smile to the set of his hip. Olds is naked before us, curious and brave and even generous toward the man who was her mate for thirty years and who now loves another woman. -- Cover, p. [4]

Olds is known as a poet of the personal. This exceptional book of poems is about her husband leaving her for someone else after 30 years of marriage. Stag’s Leap chronicles the months and years of disentangling an intertwined life. There is a verve to these poems of grief. This book won the Pulitzer Prize! I highly recommend it.

Powerful, painful poetry from a woman who has thrown caution to the winds.
