The End of Travel

The End of Travel is elegantly written and sharp-edged. There is a finesse to this collection which teases richness out of the smallest of moments: the way a straw buoys up in a can of pop, or a friend’s dress holds her shape, even on its hanger. Bruck textures her poetry with such dailiness. With teeth and heart, she cracks open the ordinary to reveal life’s love and loss, joy and fragility, its extraordinary fullness.
