Peter Gould was an original member of the 1970’s “back-to-the-land” movement in Vermont, which he chronicled in fantasy form in his first novel, ​Burnt Toast, published by Alfred A. Knopf. He is also the author of the novel Write Naked, published by Farrar Straus & Giroux, which won the 2009 National Green Earth Book Award in recognition of its strong environmental content. His newest book--his first non-fiction--is Horse-Drawn Yogurt, all about his years going back to the land.

Gould is known in nearly every town in Vermont for his Shakespeare work, his clown character, and his inspirational teaching of theater and writing. In recognition of his work, he was named the 2016 recipient of the Vermont Governor's/Arts Council Award for Arts in Education. He is one half of the internationally-touring physical comedy and political theatre duo, Gould & Stearns, who have performed more than 3500 times in forty states and on three continents. He is on the faculty of the New England Youth Theatre, taught for ten summers at Vermont Governor’s Institute on the Arts, and since 2009, he's been a professor of meditation and conflict transformation with his popular “Inner Peace/Outer Peace” class in Brandeis University’s program of Peace, Justice, and Coexistence. Gould received a doctorate in Interdisciplinary Literary Studies from Brandeis University in 2002.
