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

Rest here, between / outer and inner doors, full / sun honeying your bones.

What gives this day such perfect pitch, / a held note against the usual desolations?

The purpose of a prenatal class is to give people / the illusion that they are in charge.

Now, when I gaze at my daughter, / she raises her eyes to mine in defiance: / _Stop looking at me_, she’ll growl, and why / am I surprised?
