Many of the poems, including the title poem, come from the year that Gary Gildner lived in Slovakia. It was 1992-93, when Czechoslovakia split in two, a year of heightened excitement and uncertainty. Gildner and his wife lived in a cement box of a flat like thousands of others cheek by jowl above an abandoned bunker not far from the Tatra Mountains. They returned to a new home in Idaho's Clearwater Mountains, with Elizabeth expecting a child. The ideas of home, settlement, birth, rebirth, the past, the future, direction, luck, what matters, love, and work flow through the poems that shape this book
Somewhere geese are flying : new and selected stories by Gary Gildner( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A son (in the often anthologized "Sleepy Time Gal") competes with his parents to tell "a simple story" about a poor boy/rich girl romance that "happened many years ago in the woods by a lake in Northern Michigan" ... and the song he wrote her that became famous. ... A champion pole-vaulter jumps out of an airplane in France on D-Day, wearing a parachute that fails to open; he survives but, as his son says, "Imagine a man falling from the stars. It's a long way down." ... Thrasher, in Paris, hears geese honking in the sky and Barbara all the way from Iowa saying, "Hold still ... I'm going to kiss you now.' Stories in this book were written in many places-Michigan, Paris, Iowa, Slovakia, Oregon, Greece, Idaho, and on the Isle of Skye
