Michael Lally (born May 25, 1942) is an American-born poet and the author of twenty-seven books of poetry. He is considered part of the New York School of poetry, which began in the early 1950s and is acknowledged as one of the most influential movements of American poetry. He counts among his major influences the poets Frank O'Hara and William Carlos Williams, as well as writer William Saroyan.

Michael Lally was born in New Jersey into a working-class family . He joined the Air Force before gravitating toward the poetry scenes associated with both the Beats and the second generation New York School poets. Poet Eileen Myles introduced Another Way to Play as a broken book in the best sense. There’s no whole here, the self is never resolved, but what’s delivered, weltered in poem form, is a novelistic series of impressions. It’s a real thing and a changing thing. An aesthetic and a biographical one. Lally is the recipient of a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, among other honors. He lives in Maplewood, New Jersey.

When life is a personal movie, a poet is his own reviewer. Mike Lally's title,"It's Not Nostalgia," suggests that if he had to do it again, he wouldn't. What he does here is lay his life bare, to himself and anyone who listens. His life is wild and atypical, from playing piano with his feet in a 'Fifties band, to poet and protester in the 'Sixties, bisexual, and movie actor, all the while cupid's priest. None of it is fiction. He was where the action was, in front of whatever parade streamed from the spiritual lobes of a decade, trying to supply direction to his life and the undirected forces of his time. What does HE get out of living like a leaf in a windstorm? The ride, the ride. What he gives me, by example, is the courage to tell myself what I hide from myself. Loss is what it means to live in interesting times. There are things he hasn't resolved, failing his first marriage; why he needs to feel and be known as hip. But there's more that he's unravelled--in particular, the knowledge that it's the narrative itself that creates meaning from experience. His writing is aesthetically and historically true; and he pays a price for telling it straight. As he says, of himself, "...he had missed his chance for fame and lasting authority when he had decided to remain true to his experiences and perceptions. Distortion was the basis for success,..." That is the sound of an American needle piercing an Irish heart.

I'll keep it short and sweet...Lally comes to the point of almost telling too much, about his loves, his life, his desires, that it is at times frightening-for him and the reader. But it is always beautiful. Powerful and moving and human.
