Philip Booth


Philip Booth teaches in the Creative Writing Program at Syracuse University each spring but spends as much of the year as possible at his home in Maine. He is a frequent contributor of poetry to such magazines as The New Yorker and Harper's and is the author of several books. In 1980 he received a Fellowship in Writing from the National Endowment for the Arts. Most of the poems in Before Sleep were composed in the 130-year-old family house where the author's grandparents lived, and where his grandson represents a fifth generation.
