Bio

On a cold February night in 1992, Garrett Buhl Robinson jumped on a coal train and embarked on a journey across North America.  Over the span of a year, he hitchhiked the highways, rode the rails on freight trains and hiked 800 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail. 

 

Eventually, Garrett settled in Portland, Oregon where he completed his first novel in 2000. Upon finishing the novel and unsuccessfully marketing the book, he left for Alaska to work at a salmon cannery to pay the debts he had accumulated with various book clubs.  His cherished volumes of Proust's In Search of Lost Time put him over the edge financially, but he never hesitates to endure hardship for the sake of beauty. 

 

After two summers in Alaska, Garrett moved to San Francisco where he composed two collections of poetry.  One of these collections, Möbius Sphere, is illustrated with his own abstract vignettes.  He also completed his second novel, Zoë

 

In 2011, Garrett moved to New York City to further his literary career.  While supporting himself at various jobs, Garrett composed his third novel, Nunatak, based on his experiences working in Alaska, and a book length poem, Martha, celebrating his love for performance dance. 

 

In 2012, he began marketing his books directly to the public.  In Midtown Manhattan, along 5th Avenue, he is frequently found reciting his poetry and singing from his musical. 

 

After publishing two more collections of poetry, flowing stone and Broken Open, Garrett made his Off-Broadway debut performing his musical, Letters to Zoey, at Theatre Row in New York City. The musical is his adaptation of his second novel, Zoë.

 

Since the world Premiere, Garrett has continued to perform Letters to Zoey in New York City and Boston.
