“Sensual, passionate, earthly and unearthly together, Sharon Kraus’s work brings a fierce grief up into the same daylight of her words. The most heart-breaking poems in Generation are the childhood poems, but the others reflect that childhood’s fire: the book is ‘home-made’, and it has a rare necessity about it, and gallantry.”
Available in both print and digital formats.
