THE FATHER, by Sharon Olds is one of my favorite books of poetry. Each poem in this wonderful collection is a gem unto itself as well as an integral part of a whole, with "The Race" being my favorite.
This superb book has led me to all the other Sharon Olds collections and in that to a beauty of writing that must be felt to be believed. Brilliant and soul satisfying at the same time, the poetry of Sharon Olds is simply magnificent.
