Reviews

"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 *
