The Dreaming House (chapbook)
David Chorlton was born in Austria and grew up in Manchester, England, home of rain and industry. He moved to Austria in 1971 to live in Vienna, where he developed his work as an artist and began to write poetry. He used to travel often by train around Europe to explore and to paint. Seven years later, he moved to Phoenix (his wife's home city). Within a few years, he was publishing poems in small press magazines around the country and individual collections followed, including chapbooks: Assimilation (winner of the Main Street Rag contest), Common Sightings (Winner of the Palanquin Press contest), and Greatest Hits (Pudding House Publications), and books A Normal Day Amazes Us (Kings Estate Press) and Return to Waking Life (Main Street Rag Publishing Company). He has shown his art work in several galleries and art centers, and he has given many readings of his poetry as well as occasional dramatic readings outside that genre.
