The Train of Strangers & Friends

As radiation sweeps across the world, earth quakes, and bombs drop, this is one poet's response to 2011 - as he creates a place to gather, to share stories, to seek peace. Through gathered poems, in the company of departed strangers & friends, in memory's snowstorm we discover how close we are to each other - all over the globe. This poem-movie screens aboard our vanished train:'The Newfie Bullet'

PRAISE for William Gough's Books:
"Gough’s writing is...poignant, spare, with the strength and subtlety of a fine woodcut..." E. Annie Proulx/

Maud’s House…is a literary compliment paid to a people whose richest bounty, next to the sea, is the gift of language. It is also a detailed snapshot of a lost era, lovingly developed in the darkroom of the writer’s memory. …it’s clear that the richness of language as it is spoken in Newfoundland is in Gough’s literary blood.”
Michael Harris, The Globe and Mail

“A good novel does something which happens only rarely in our day-to-day perceptions; It sets down what can happen in an instant of time.
“Maud’s House is a wonderful book, a treat to read, and one of the best books I’ve read this year, period…”
Peter Gard, The Evening Telegram
