Naylor lives in San Diego, where he directs Singing Horse Press.
"Paul Naylor's Anarcheology charts the ebb and flow of associations with firstness: the poet's young daughter and her emergence into language, the poet's own mortality, the natural landscape, increasingly vulnerable to the 'dictates of exchange.' These are deeply personal poems without the rhetoric of personality. Naylor, like George Oppen before him, is obsessed and bewildered by 'the shipwreck / Of the singular,' yet through these brilliant, economical lyrics he finds a kind of solace in the variable movement of transient, growing things. Anarcheology is an amazing, necessary book." - Michael Davidson
