Bruce Ducker was born in New York City and now lives in Colorado. He has practiced corporate law for most of his career and is the founding partner of a Denver law firm. His poetry and short fiction have appeared in such journals as The Yale Review, Poetry, Commonwealth, and the Literary Review.

Bruce’s eighth and ninth books appeared in 2008, and both have received strong critical reception.  Dizzying Heights is “Colorado’s answer to Carl Hiaasen….A comedy of manners… [with] a keen sense of intelligence and a poetic sense of setting.”  Home Pool, a collection of his popular fishing stories, has drawn extravagant praise from writers in the field.

Critics have called earlier books “an evocative counterpart of loaded terms,” Boston Globe, “understated, elegant prose,” Denver Post, “written so allusively, so lyrically, so in tune with the quotidian,” L. A. Times, and from Dave Barry, “a vivid, compelling and beautifully crafted book. Bruce Ducker is a hell of a writer.” He received the Colorado Book Award for Lead Us Not Into Penn Station and was nominated for The Pulitzer Prize for Marital Assets.
