About Domestic Violence:

"In these poems, a thunderous past lives inside the hunmdrum day-to-day."
Philadelphia Inquirer

"Ireland's greatest woman writer is in top form as she dissects the connection between interpersonal and international violence, and the passive and frightened silences that permit them to continue."

"Vivid and passionate. . . .Boland pursues, in fierce, accessible free verse her sense that the personal is political."
Publishers Weekly
