About the book:

"All things break and fall against this life, /and this life gathers the shards and makes song," Julie Babcock writes in this dazzling poetry/hybrid collection. Here, the gaps, ellipses, and erasures are like the clefts across which synapses fire. The cleft is between life and death, and the fire comes from Babcock's language and fearless structure. This book is a song, a fugue, a state of both being and becoming - and it will rearrange your mental furniture."

-Sue William Silverman, author of If the Girl Never Learns

Julie Babcock's hybrid poetry collection, Rules for Rearrangement, won the Kithara Book Prize. She is also the author of Autoplay, described as both an ode and an elegy to her Midwestern upbringing. Her poetry and fiction appear in The Rumpus, PANK, december magazine, and has been anthologized in New Poetry from the Midwest.  She is the recipient of a Vermont Studio fellowship and several Pushcart nominations. She teaches in an interdisciplinary writing program at University of Michigan and is finishing her first novel.
