About the Book
In Where The Time Goes Walden takes you on a road trip under skies flirting with transgression as she considers the yada, yada of romance, her mother’s beginning Alzheimer’s, the ghost of a dog digging up her bone. Things are ordinary until they aren’t—antique post office boxes are time travel machines, Jack-in-the-Box fast food machines talk back to people, and the end-of-the-world weather blows simulacrum through prairies and deserts.
Amy Hassinger’s analysis of Walden’s poem “Autobiography.”
“Walden’s lyricism is quirky, comic, yet strangely touching — the poignancy emerging when you least expect it.” — The Harvard Review
“Walden’s observations are true, a personal truth that will resonate with some readers and bring empathetic understanding to others. Her style is straightforward, choosing words precisely without the need to flaunt, and illustrative: every new story brought a small movie to life inside my mind.” — Rebecca Knaur, Review, Smile Politely
Praise for Gale Walden’s Same Blue Chevy . . .
“The intelligence and faithfulness to her vision that moves thought the poems make even flat landscape voluptuous with meaning.” — Susan Swartwout, American Book Review
