Editorial Reviews

“Alert and precise, perceptive and measured, Julie Bruck’s poems calibrate situations both grave and brave, serious and hilarious, whilst avoiding the ‘large ships’ of heavy-handed conclusion. Here are genuine smarts, mature talent, and a wide-angle vision.”

— Sharon Thesen

"Julie Bruck writes graceful, lovely and wonderfully constructed poems that are a pleasure to read."

— Stephen Dobyns

“She is the poet laureate of aftermath, of what we do in the wake of things. She picks up the broken pieces of what’s left, and these she patches together, as she can, into beautifully-wrought poems that bear eloquent witness to what remains.”

— Seán Kennedy
