Published to great acclaim from both readers and reviewers, Under a Gull’s Wing is the first contemporary collection of poems and photographs about the Jersey Shore. The anthology covers such quintessential shore subjects as boardwalks and beaches, love and loss, legends, lore, and famous landmarks.
Under a Gull’s Wing takes readers on an evocative trip down the shore, from the tip of Sandy Hook to Victorian Cape May. The contributors include some of the nation’s best known poets Walt Whitman, John Ciardi, Robert Pinsky (the nation’s Poet Laureate), A. R. Ammons, and Maxine Kumin, among others.
A mix of celebration, lament, and history, Under a Gull’s Wing presents all of the Shore: from the natural beauty of Island Beach and the Forsythe Refuge to familiar and timeless beach towns to the decay of Asbury Park and Atlantic City. Even such quirky history as Lucy the Margate Elephant and the High-Diving Horse of Atlantic City’s old Steel Pier are remembered.
This beautiful hardcover also includes more than two dozen artistic photographs by some of the state’s best photographers. The Jersey Shore is one of the nation’s most renowned and beloved regions and has inspired some of the nation’s best poets; this book is a worthy tribute to both.
This book is a wonderful companion book to our latest title, Shore Stories - An Anthology of the Jersey Shore.
"With images that evoke nostalgia and longing, Under A Gull’s Wing is a travelogue of sentiment about a place called the Jersey Shore." The Philadelphia Inquirer
"A special pleasure to read." The Star-Ledger
"...An anthology worthy of the Jersey Shore... From the extraordinary to the everyday, Under A Gull’s Wing captures life from Sandy Hook to Cape May."
