Poems, Ghosts, and Spencer Tracy

Your Father on the Train of Ghosts was recently reviewed by Joshua Diamond of the Sycamore Review.  Diamond says that John Gallaher and G.C. Waldrep are ahead of the curve in a year of American poetry he names, "The Year of the Ghost."  He comments on the collection's ability to "navigate" readers to a familiar place by referencing automated towns, parental figures, and even a Spencer Tracy film. Calling Your Father on the Train of Ghosts "not a typical collaboration," Diamond writes, "It is also not a G.C. Waldrep or a John Gallaher book; rather a hybrid speaker emerges wearing Waldrep's hat and Gallaher's sneakers." Read the full review at Sycamore Review TrainofGhostsCover_smaller
