About

Jeannine Hall Gailey received 2007 GAP Award funding to continue researching Japanese fairy tales and writing new poems for her collection, The Woman Who Disappears, a reference to a recurrent character in these folk stories. Jeannine is interested in the connections between American and Japanese imaginative expressions and how the latter reflect traditional values and influence popular culture in the U.S. She weaves her own sense of non-belonging into her understanding of these myths and uses this alienation to also address the ecological and psychological impacts of the nuclear bomb on both countries.
