Poetry. "Elaine Sexton knows how to raise autobiography to the level of true poetry, and this knack has much to do with her use of surprise. Just when we think we know where one of her poems is going, we step into air. SLEUTH leads us carefully into her life through a series of bracing verbal delights" -Billy Collins.
