Monkey Ranch is a rich, layered collection of poems that “sing and roil with everything complicated and joyous we human monkeys are” (C. Eady). Taking nearly 13 years to come together, these poems dip into the details of family and domestic life with all the charm and whit the cover implies.
Prepare yourself a deliciously layered Flying Monkey and settle in for a delightful read.
