“If we didn’t love America so much, we wouldn’t hate America so much. That’s the spirit of Dan Wright’s Love Letters from the Underground. These poems are love letters to Americana, American dreams—some bygone, others that never existed—and a dying planet that could keep living were it not for human nature. Yet there is levity in the verse, and the book reads easy. At once a pessimistic optimist and a benevolent nihilist, Wright turns a critical yet ever-loving eye to planet and inhabitant, nation and citizen, home and self, in this maverick third full-length collection.”
