What people are saying about my new collection, When the World Was Rear-Wheel Drive: New Jersey Poems:

“Timothy Walsh’s wonderful third collection is a sometimes raucous, sometimes uproarious, always charmed and charming journey back to an America of simpler passions and pleasures…. In these lovely, big-hearted, and luminous poems he is firing on all eight cylinders.”            –Ron Wallace


“This is narrative poetry at its finest.”                –Susan Elbe


“In these atmospheric, memory and language driven poems, Walsh explores the desire-riddled, nun-haunted, car-languaged, Catholic-ritualed world of his New Jersey adolescence.”                 –Susan Firer

      Dear John Paul,
      Profuse apologies for not replying to your email sooner! I very rarely remember to check for comments on my website and just now came across yours.
      It is very gratifying to know that you are interested in my poetry and writing. I’ve been back to New Jersey several times in the last two years to do readings, after a long absence from this wonderful place where so many of my formative experiences happened.
      Feel free to get back to me directly by email.
      All the best,
      –Tim Walsh
