Barry Gifford's newest poetry collection captures the disarray of a life lived with passion and in many places. Gifford ponders serendipitous acquaintances, mourns the deaths of friends and squandered relationships, and writes love-filled notes to his daughter and granddaughter. New York, 1960 is an evocative collection from an enduring voice.
Barry Gifford has authored more than forty books, which have been published in twenty-eight languages. His work has been awarded by PEN, the NEA, the Los Angeles Times, and the New York Times. His film credits include Wild at Heart, Lost Highway, City of Ghosts, and more.
