The Amazon Book Review

"In this book of linked poems, Crystal Hurdle channels the many voices that comprise the hardest, brightest stars in the constellation of Sylvia Plath's life. The tenderness and the tensions between Plath and her husband, poet Ted Hughes, are empathetically delineated, as is the profound linguistic influence of Plath's mother, Aurelia. This is an accomplished first book that combines scholarly and poetic responses to Sylvia Plath's life and work."
