Horse-Drawn Yogurt

Publisher: Green Writers Press

Total Loss Farm in Guilford, Vermont, was and is a wordy place. Its hilly acres and flimsy buildings provided a refuge from a riven country, a place to grow paragraphs and stanzas, among the tilled rows of the market garden. Peter Gould’s first novel Burnt Toast was a youthful exploration of this mythic turf. Peter left the farm to pursue love and work. In Horse-Drawn Yogurt, Peter returns to offer his take on how we lived in times that seem exotic, yet oddly familiar, in this second edition, with three new stories and an introduction by Vermont author Bill Schubart. Gould is eloquent, whimsical, critical, musical, magical, and tender. The new stories in this second edtion are gems with additional line drawings by the author.

About Peter Gould of Brattleboro, VT


PETER GOULD is a founder of youth Shakespeare camps around Northern Vermont, and a professor of meditation-for-conflict-transformation at Brandeis University. Peter was a member of the original back-to-the-land movement in Vermont in the 1970's, a way of life he has chronicled in fictional form in the novels Burnt Toast (Alfred A. Knopf, 1971) and Write Naked (Farrar, Straus, & Giroux, 2008). Peter has worked to perfect his ear for dialogue in more than 4000 live physical theater performances (Gould & Stearns, etc) all over the world, and in directing young people in more than 70 theater productions. His experimental novella, MARLY, was conceived and begun at the Wildbranch Writers Workshop at Sterling College, Vermont, in 2011 and published by Green Writers Press in 2015.
