"Anne Carson's novel in verse is a whimsical and contemporary take on the myth of Geryon and Herakles. The book is gorgeous, playful, and profound all at the same time."— Bryan
"The most exciting poet writing in English today.... A rare talent -- brilliant and full of wit,passionate and also deeply moving." - Michael Ondaatje
"A novel in the shape of a poem, a classical story made contemporary--wry, poignant, beautiful and occasionally erotic. Carson writes like an angel--Her passions recall that incandescent chronicler of love Elisabeth Smart [and] Malcolm Lowry--This romantic fable is--a rare (red) bird among Canadian novels--A wonderful book of dense, glittering prose poetry that is both timely and timeless." - Katherine Govier, Time
"Amazing -- I haven't discovered any writing in years so marvelously disturbing." - Alice Munro
"Wildly imaginative and inventive--The first dozen pages will convince anyone--that Carson is an authentic and original talent." - Douglas Fetherling, The Ottawa Citizen
