Stag's Leap

by stephanie w on Jun 27, 2013

Sharon Olds has always been guts on the table. Now she bares her entrails after her husband?s defection, chronicling all she regrets and resents and misses, speculating how she might have driven him away with sex or blindness or poetic oversharing. Raw as ever, she scrapes the skin off her pain till her surgeon?s eye refills with tears. Details too intimate for a friendship become comfort from a stranger, reassurance all we feel is human. No wonder it won the Pulitzer.
