Ink Monkey

85 pages23 minutes


Ink Monkey is Diana Hartog's first book of poetry in more than thirteen years and her patience is the reader's reward. In these spare and elegant poems -- not a word out of place, not an unnecessary syllable -- Hartog turns a perceptive eye toward the stories of seemingly ordinary things, of overlooked moments and long-closed rooms. Whether she is writing about jellyfish, the desert, awkward silences that end a relationship, struggles of creativity, or Japanese prints, her poems are astute and beautiful.
