In his new poetry collection, Jack Foley revels in a wild and varied display bringing together many styles and preoccupations, from the depths of grief to love to the heights where light has its source. We might turn the title into a question: When sleep comes, can light be far behind? The diversity of forms and themes in this collection amply demonstrate Foley's concept of mind as being not one but multiple, a dark cinematic chamber peopled with many voices and masks. Foley is our contemporary vaudeville performer, tap dancing on his own stage and singing in multiple voices with many a nod and shake to poets alive and dead.
About The Author:
Jack Foley has published fifteen books of poetry, five books of criticism, and VISIONS AND AFFILIATIONS (Pantograph Press, 2011), a "chronoencyclopedia" of California poetry from 1940 to 2005. His most recent books include WHEN SLEEP COMES: SHILLELAGH SONGS (Sagging Meniscus press, 2020), RIVERRUN ( Poetry Hotel Press, 2017), GRIEF SONGS (Sagging Meniscus Press, 2017), THE TIGER AND OTHER TALES (Sagging Meniscus press, 2016), EYES (Poetry Hotel Press, 2013), and THE "FALLEN WESTERN STAR" WARS (Scarlet Tanager Books, 2001). He became well known through his "multivoiced" performances with his late wife, Adelle, who was also a poet; many of these can be seen on YouTube. His radio show, "Cover to Cover," airs every Wednesday on KPFA- FM in California. In 2010, Foley received the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Berkeley Poetry Festival.
