Trail of Roots:

(Winner of the A.V. Christie Chapbook Series, Seven Kitchens Press)

"Thomas guides the reader on a physical and emotional journey...These are poems rooted in America—with its landscapes of genocide, misogyny, homophobia...Thomas has brought us to a place of “wonder/and hallelujah, still breathing.” I will return here many times." -- Jennifer Martelli, author of The Queen of Queens


Leaving Paradise:

"Leaving Paradise is a book about the spaces in between, and about being in two places at once...For Gail Thomas, and she speaks for us all, ripe life sits beside life’s passing, and the parts of life we must shed to move forward."
Rebecca Hart Olander, author of Uncertain Acrobats


 Poet and teacher Gail Thomas is the author of several previous books of poetry, including Odd Mercy, Waving Back, No Simple Wilderness, and Finding the Bear, and has won numerous awards.  She lives in Western Massachusetts.
