Joe the Salamander
Novel, 2022 GOLDEN ANTELOPE PRESS
"“I have worked on complicated television projects like The Assassination of Gianni Versace, where how we choose to tell the story can be as risky as the story we are trying to tell. It can either go well or.... But, in my opinion, Timothy Gager has knocked Joe the Salamander out of the park, pulling us into the mind of a non-verbal infant, and then pulling us through his life as witnesses to his confusion and pain. The entire book unfolds with cinematic grace, leaving me wanting more. I’d love to see this on a screen, or on my desk as a screenplay soon. "

Poetry, 2021 BIG TABLE PUBLISHING
"“Tell me where to go,” one poem plaintively asks, in this collection written in the midst of a pandemic. Timothy Gager manages to capture the chaos, the confusion, the despair, and the existential strangeness of those (of these) days. By the time this book reaches you, I pray we will be on the other side. If not, then these poems will bring you comfort. If so, then these poems will be a document from a time that will not be believed."
American Poet, Memoirist and Playwright
Spreading Like Wild Flowers
Poetry, 2019 BIG TABLE PUBLISHING
"In his new collection Spreading like Wild Flowers, Gager stripped down the poems to their essence. His ears attuned to nature-- the way a bird chirps metaphors on a rainy day, a feral cat screeches in the dead of night--Gager knows not to ignore it. Gager is a poet engaged—with the world, his interiority, and he shares his insights with us."

Every Day There Is Something About Elephants
Flash Fictions, 2018 BIG TABLE PUBLISHING
"These stories by Timothy Gager are skewed, off-center, off-balance and an absolute delight to read. They begin strange, then fill like a balloon of strangeness about to pop, except they don't. They bob and quiver on your palm like so much lime jello. Oddly moving and always thought provoking, Every Day There is Something about Elephants is Lydia Davis meets Etgar Keret in a saloon and they're passing a napkin back and forth, riffing, pens blazing. That."
Author of Together We Can Bury It
Chief Jay Strongbow is Real
Poems, 2017 BIG TABLE PUBLISHING
"Tim's work is the cool that doesn't know it's fire. And his poetry, dry ice, cold to a flame. And all that cool, fire, ice, vocabulary and metaphor make volcanoes out of sandboxes of life and experience."
A Poet Force to be reckoned with
Grand Slams: a coming of eggs story
Novel, 2016 BIG TABLE PUBLISHING
Fast paced and lots of fun. With Grand Slams, Timothy Gager has served up enough pathos, wit and humanity to satisfy the healthiest of appetites. "
AUTHOR of She Came From Beyond
The Thursday Appointments of Bill Sloan
Novel, 2014 BIG TABLE PUBLISHING
"As the son of two psychoanalysts, I feel qualified in diagnosing Timothy Gager as a very sick human being and a fearless writer. His prose is odd, mordant, and disobedient. Read him at your peril."
AUTHOR of God Bless America
The Shutting Door
Full-length, 2013 IBBETSON STREET PRESS
"Timothy Gager is a genius of the quotidian, keenly observing the details of our lives and rendering them so that we can hear the deep pulse of our identities, of our pure being, within them. The Shutting Door is a ravishing, wonderful, enlightening book."
-Robert Olen Butler
PULTIZER PRIZE WINNING AUTHOR
29 Poems, 40 pages, 2013 RED NECK PRESS
Many of these poems deal with outsiders, drug abuse, bar stories, the mix one would expect with the word 'anti-social' in the title. Gager manages to travel this well-trod ground lightly, though, and brings a lot of humor and insight.
author of SUNLIGHT and NAMING THE ANIMALS
Treating A Sick Animal: Flash and Micro Fictions
46 stories, 140 pages, 2009 CERVENA BARVA PRESS
This book is a trip-- or actually it is 40-plus quick and vivid trips into Timothy Gager's untamed fictional terrain. Sometimes surreal, sometimes all-too-real, these Flash Fictions always surprise. Fasten your readerly seatbelt, choose your own adventure and enjoy the wild rides.
author of CELEBRITIES IN DISGRACE and TONYA & NANCY: THE ROCK OPERA
These Poems are not Pink Clouds
48 pages, 2008 PROPAGANDA PRESS
It's a nice, friendly collection. The poems recount many of the author's experiences w/ women, in places as disparate as Chicago, NYC, Maine, Ohio, & lots of spots around Boston. Gager gives the reader a fine sense of life, of the feeling of being alive, of the strange significance of small moments.
-John Berbrich, Barbaric Yawp
this is where you go when you are gone
48 pages,2008 CERVENA BARVA PRESS
Tim Gager’s poems are poems of the regular guy, and in their own way Gager’s work is as American as apple pie. He is a man who is confused by and craves women, retains a childlike enthusiasm for Baseball into his middle age , downs the burger and brews, and pines for something that is always seems just out of his reach.
-Doug Holder, Small Press Review
