"There was a part of me that was horrified, but the gutsy part of me drove on. Still, part of me was appalled by what I was doing. On the one hand I was digging up shit, with the other hand, I was covering it with sand. Nevertheless, I went on ahead. I didn't know any better. Sometimes, I felt like a reporter researching himself. Yes, it took a certain courage, but as a writer one has to take the chance on being a fool... yes, to be a fool, that perhaps requires the greatest courage."
Una raccolta di saggi e interviste in cui Anne Sexton racconta di sé, commenta la propria opera e illustra i suoi procedimenti creativi.... I brevi appunti diaristici raccolti nella sezione All God's Children Need Radios valgono da soli l'intero libro.
