Phillip Henry Christopher is a poet, novelist, and singer/songwriter who spent his early years in France, Germany, and Greece. His nomadic family then took him to Mississippi, Georgia, Ohio, and Vermont, before settling in the steel mill town of Coatesville, Pennsylvania, where he grew up in the smokestack shadows of blue-collar America. While wandering the U.S., he has placed poems and stories in publications across the country and in Europe and Asia, including in such noteworthy journals as The Caribbean Writer, Gargoyle, Lullwater Review, Blue Collar Review, Haight Ashbury Literary Journal, Blind Man’s Rainbow, and New York Quarterly.

As a musician and songwriter he has contributed to several albums, including World Music and Americana releases. His latest, The Bootleg, is available only at live concerts. Check out Bite Marks, a film by Mark Bessenger, for Phillip Henry Christopher’s feature film debut. And look for a video reading of his book, Pizza and Chianti, soon to be released on the Don Yorty blog.
