Bruce's language is deceptively straightforward, words resonate with echoes of revival meetings and oral storytelling traditions. She hones in on the perfect image, the apt metaphor. The "rattle" of the title becomes at once the rattle of memory and the rattle of death, but also the rattle that animates nature and syncopates the music of our lives as we move through it.
