V&A_paired

Anyone with a serious interest in the literary history of California will by now have heard of Jack Foley’s 1300 page, two-volume opus, Visions & Affiliations ~ A California Literary Time Line: Poets & Poetry 1940-2005, which Dana Gioia describes as   . . .  the most comprehensive history of post-war California poetry—a study that not only surveys the lives and work of hundreds of literary figures but also cogently addresses the contradictory impulses in the state’s creative psyche.”

Jack has created a blog to accompany Visions & Affiliations, which includes both generous offerings from the book, and reactions to the book from a range of critics. It can be found at  www.foleypoet.com

FoleyCover8_reducedVisions and Affiliations is also the subject of the new book Jack Foley’s Unmanageable Masterpiece, by Dana Gioia and Peter Whitfield (Monongahela Books, 2019).
