Fragments Of Oblivion By Robert Foley
Chicago native Robert Foley has been writing for years. Once a Columbia College student of poet Paul Hoover, and a Northwestern student of poet John Jacobs and author Asa Baber, he honed his craft and style into this volume of poetry collected here for the first time. He also has the unique distinction of being the only Chicagoan to ever witness a no-hitter on both sides of town. Author of the forthcoming bio novel, The Fate of Geography, which captures the turbulent 60's, rambunctious ramblings, architecture, and Wrigley Field's left field bleachers, he now splits his time between the city of his youth and the warm climes of Florida with his wife Wendy and their canine daughter Michy. Upon reading some of the poetry listed in this body of work, the following people had this to say.
"Keep up the hot work!" - Lawrence Ferlinghetti
"I was not disappointed." - John Martin, former publisher Black Sparrow Press
"Enjoyed your book a lot, with all its cultural cross-references and bright insights." - Ed Sanders
"Thank you for Hey, Allen." - Donald Hall
"I enjoyed it. Thank you." - Ron Padgett
