Reviews

"This volume vividly preserves young love through Ted's letters to Sandy while she was institutionalized--packed with rage, frustration, and thoughts about writing . . . 'It's time for less warm tears and more cold fury, ' writes Ted, transporting the reader to a time when a passionate and impulsive young woman could be committed for behavior contrary to social norms. Even those unfamiliar with Ted's poetry will be fascinated by the drama inherent in this collection."--"Publishers Weekly"(starred review)
