I read this book to review it for a literary journal, as the publisher of the book, BOA Editions, sent me a review copy. I was excited because Waldrep is one of my favorite contemporary poets and the concept of poetry co-written between two poets via email sounded exciting. Overall, Waldrep and his co-author, Gallaher, present innovative and original work here, but the sheer length of this volume and rambling tone of the poems—the result of the unique effort of two poets working together in th [...]

This book doesn't come together for me, but I'm willing to believe that's my fault. A collaboration between two poets, who emailed back and forth for a year, and somehow managed to create a third voice (a ghost?), this book makes me sad that young, hip readers don't favor poetry. Chockful of brilliant, irreverent writing and manic cultural references, the book is kind of the bastard kid of poet James Tate. And I mean that as a high compliment.Note: All of Waldrep's poetry collections are worth r [...]

This review was published in the October issue of Gently Read Literature---you can read it here: issuu/gently_read_literatuLike a once-obscure indie band blowing up the blogosphere, much of the talk behind Your Father on the Train of Ghosts has been on the back story, how two All-Star poets who have yet to nail down Hall of Fame credentials got together to write a book. And how they used email to do it, trading poem for poem in a kind of lineated penpalship of collaborated prolificacy. Rumor has [...]

Spot on to my taste in poetry, which is visual, somewhat narrative, and quirky. The entry is misleading because this book is co-written by G. C. Waldrep and John Gallaher, a collaboration that really soars. A few poems use two voices so deftly that I couldn't help but read them aloud. They use prose-y voices to convey poetic images that set off all the red flags we've collected in our brains between the years 1905-2012. The levels of framing of their images are also huge and beautiful; one of m [...]

I vacillated between a 3 and a 4 on this one. What cinched it for me came down to how readers should approach this poetry, at least from my perspective. For me, most of these poems didn't hold tightly together. Each one jumps from image to image and concept to concept very quickly, which can confuse readers of they are looking for a poem that is more narrative and as a whole, coherent. The power of these poems is in the individual images of the lines and the crazy jumps they make within each pie [...]

Gorgeous. Haunting. The collaborations stand alone without needing to know the process behind them. Love this book.

I had trouble with a lot of these poems but I really enjoyed most of the language and the visuals. The tone was interesting. I want to know more about this collaboration.
