Abstract

In the first of a series profiling some of Ireland's poetry publishers, I talked to Peter Fallon, founder and editor of The Gallery Press which has just completed two decades of publishing. The Gallery Press operates from an early nineteenth century cottage in north Meath, a few hundred yards away from the Fallon home. The six rooms of the stonebuilt cottage serve as stockrooms, editorial office, and meeting rooms. It was in the last named that I taped this interview on 5 December 1991, a week after Gallery had launched its most recent titles: Negotiations with the Chill Wind, John Hughes; The Clare Island Survey, Sean Lysaght; Marconi's Cottage, Medbh McGuckian; Ways of Falling, Peter Sirr; Faith Healer, Brian Friel; and a book of stories by Tom Mac Intyre, The Word for Yes. Although Gallery also publishes prose and plays, my questions concentrated on poetry.
