Chapter 16 (a forum of Tennessee writers, readers, and passerby) posted a fantastic interview with Gaylord Brewer regarding his 8th collection of poems Give Over, Graymalkin. Gaylord discusses his residences abroad and his inspirations for his new collection.
"Ive been lucky to travel a lot and have a lot of residencies, and it so happens that the majority of poems in this book were indeed written in India, Spain, and France, thanks to the enduring patience of a number of kind and odd folks. Lord, how I suffer. Wonderful experiences and inspirations, but also those attendant moments of dislocation, darkness, exhaustion bought and paid for."
