About the Author

Jack Foley has published 17 books of poetry, 5 books of criticism, a book of stories, and a 1300-page "chronoencyclopedia," Visions & Affi liations, detailing "California Poetry 1940-2005." He has presented poetry on Berkeley radical radio station KPFA-FM regularly since 1988 and is currently one of the hosts of KPFA's literary program, "Cover to Cover." He has received two Lifetime Achievement Awards, one from Marquis Who's Who and one from the Berkeley Poetry Festival. June 5, 2010 was declared "Jack Foley Day" in Berkeley. His recent publications include EYES (selected poems); The Tiger & Other Tales, a book of stories; Riverrun, a book of experimental poetry; and Grief Songs, a book documenting his grief at the death of his wife, Adelle. Two new books of Foley's poetry, When Sleep Comes: Shillelagh Songs and Duet of Polygon, a collaboration with Japanese poet Maki Starfi eld, have recently appeared, and poets/scholars Dana Gioia and Peter Whitfi eld have published Jack Foley's Unmanageable Masterpiece--a book of essays dealing with Visions & Affi liations. In a review, Micah Zevin writes, "Foley's When Sleep Comes: Shillelagh Songs is a collection that speaks multitudes, gives voice and voices to the human condition in all its tragic and celebratory facets, compels us to keep singing until the last song is sung."
