Summary:
"In One Secret Thing, Sharon Olds completes her cycle of family poems. The book opens with a poem in twelve parts, which focuses on fearsome images of war. This vision of strife between nations is followed by indelible new poems of conflict within a family. Here are poems of home in which anger, joy, danger, and desire sing together with lyric energy - sometimes comic, sometimes with unblinking forgiveness."--Jacket.
