The Woman Downstairs

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.
