Product description


"Olds’s descriptive gift is like a fire hose of frankness…undeniably powerful." (Jeremy Noel-Tod Sunday Times)

"Olds’s inspired new collection alerts us to taboos we barely think about ordinarily…These odes, because they illuminate what it is to live inside a body and survive its outrages, are useful – and beautiful too." (Kate Kellaway Guardian)

"[An] inspired new collection… She writes…with a driven perkiness… Throughout, there is a bold sexiness that goes beyond sex, that borders on camp, fey or funny… Marvellous odes… Beautiful." (Kate Kellaway Guardian Weekly)

"[It is] interspersed with acts of breathtaking linguistic daring." (Charlotte Mendelson Observer, Book of the Year)

"Her new collection, Odes, is an exquisite follow up [to Stag’s Leap.]" (Daily Telegraph)

Book Description

"The provocative and moving follow-up to the Pulitzer Prize-winning, bestselling Stag's Leap"
