Woman Downstairs, The by Julie Bruck
Winner of The A.M. Klein Prize for Poetry in 1994
In The Woman Downstairs, eloquence is intimate companion to an attentive and hungry eye. Subtle as a glance, Julie Bruck moves through the accidents, the minute occurrences and acquaintances of life – parents, friends, lovers, neighbours and long dead house guests. With a passionate distance, Bruck blends the cool embrace of the outside observer with an intense desire to know eccentric smallnesses to gentle the beautiful out of the mundane.
