He has two comic novels in verse, Pineapple and Back to the Wine Jug, from Sagging Meniscus Press. He has been the director of Livingston Press at The University of West Alabama . . . forever.

“Poor humans, poor creatures!” The chorus of voices that interrupt and thus animate Joe Taylor’s swift and pointed Highway 28 West echo in the mind and ear of a reader long after the final page is turned. The story line is kaleidoscopic and urgent; the style is downhome; the sentences shine as with a yellow light. . . . Thank you, Author!"
