Your Father on the Train of Ghosts

288 pages1 hour


Between February 2008 and May 2009 Waldrep and Gallaher wrote poems back and forth to each other, sometimes once or twice a week, sometimes five or six times in a single day. As the collaboration deepened, a "third voice" developed that neither poet could claim, but was a combination of their two voices. The net result was 450 poems—well over 600 pages of work—from which the present volume is drawn. The book represents one of the most extensive collaborations in the history of American poetry.
G.C. Waldrep and John Gallaher are two of the most respected poets on their generation. Between them, their awards include the Colorado Prize; the Dorset Prize; the Levis Poetry Prize; inclusion in Best American Poetry volumes; two Ph.Ds; and publication in all the leading poetry magazines.
Both poets receive considerable critical attention and we anticipate that their combined effort - and the scope of this unique project - will garner a great number of reviews and generate much discussion.
