It’s this oscillation of the poet’s camera lens, moving from the extreme close-up of a child...to the wide pan of an adult...that raises Bruck’s Monkey Ranch from the merely prosaic to poetically powerful.

Synopsis

Poetry. "I have long considered Julie Bruck to be one of our most committed and humane voices. Bruck sees everything we do; she just seems to see it wiser. Her poems sing and roil with everything complicated and joyous we human monkeys are."—Cornelius Eady

"MONKEY RANCH has all the antic sensuality and thrilling precision we've come to expect from Julie Bruck's work. This volume has a pitch-perfect elegance that calms the ruckus just long enough for us to glimpse the vulnerability of everyone involved. MONKEY RANCH is like the best sort of letter from a friend—full of gossip, lively observation, and serious wit."—Sharon Thesen
