Dear, Sincerely (Pitt Poetry Series)
Praise For Dear, Sincerely (Pitt Poetry Series)…
"Dear everyone, you should read David Hernandez's new book, because 'Dear, Sincerely' is a generous and inventive invitation to laughter. All of the poems in this collection possess the same qualities that great letters possess: they are entertaining and still honest, immediate, and intimate."
“A monster book of poems. Hernandez is a monster poet. These love letters are giant poems cutting a big path right into your central nervous system, once there they’ll reset the jog. Hernandez doesn’t care about you, he will happily make you laugh or cry on whim with his wicked wit. A solid stream of great ideas rendered poetic.”
—Today’s Book of Poetry
“Hernandez writes in the voice of a mayfly at the end of his 24 hours on Earth. Doorknobs, mylar balloons, and team mascots get similarly imaginative attention in this spectacular collection.”
—Santa Barbara Independent
“Do not let the fact that David Hernandez is one of the funniest poets at work today mislead you into thinking ‘comic’ poets can’t also be learned, wise, socially aware, and capable of deep pathos. Hernandez possesses all these qualities—in abundance. His new book is nothing short of dazzling.”
