The Distance Between reflects a woman balancing her own wild and reckless heart with the responsibilities of marriage and motherhood. It is both the drawing together and the completely falling apart; the slow dancing in the kitchen and the slamming of the doors. To write lines about the one you love such as “and what we have/isn’t called sex anymore” and balance it with the simplicity of “Coltrane on the stereo/red wine and mac and cheese/and a quiet bliss” takes raw guts, which Julie has plenty of, as she opens the window to these joyous and painful truths.

"Julie Valin writes of love and all of its variations: "and it never stopped/being good." This is a "mac and cheese" passion and survival of poems, the contradictions of daily life with its give and take, a sort of John Updike-swapping in search of Paradise. These poems are "the simple truth/of things," as Valin so nicely puts it."
-Ann Menebroker, poet
