• "<b>Supple and taut, brutal and delicate,</b> <i>Woman At Sea</i> pulled me about with the tug and thrust of an ocean-storm. The roars gave way to calm spells, though, so<b> intensely beautiful </b>I thought them made by magic. With <b>whip-crackingly smart dialogu</b>e, and <b>prose as clean as a sea-breeze</b>, this book is delightfully, heartstoppingly frank.<b> I devoured it, and will be pressing it on everyone I know. </b>"
