A poetic letter to the lost in the author’s life and to the lives of the larger world in these days of endless war

Dear All, is a book of moral urgency that eradicates the differences between private and public lives as it uncovers memory’s distortions and inaccuracies. Maggie Anderson negotiates the perceptions and self-deceptions we live with and, through both humor and surprise, finds a way to bear them.

“…The vulnerability in these poems is real, but so is the hope.”—Maurice Manning

“…It is a darkly ravishing achievement.”—Lynn Emanuel
