“A lyrical voice of eloquence and splendor. She can bring peace or wry laughter, shatter illusions or dispel loneliness.” —Los Angeles Times
“Erica Jong is a poet who owes nothing to anyone. Colloquial and seemingly casual, her poems run the widest gamut. Compounded of surprises, they are sly but penetrating, witty but passionate, bawdy and beautiful. It is a poetry to fall in love with.” —Louis Untermeyer
