Matthew Thorburn, Poet - Author of Dear Almost
Okay, my reasons for interviewing John Gallaher weren’t completely objective. For one thing, I already admired his work and found his book-length poem, In A Landscape, strangely impossible to put down. (How often do you say that about a poetry book?) For another, I’d just about finished writing a book-length poem myself and couldn’t help wondering: How did he do it? Why did he do it? His answers are right here.
