“John Hoppenthaler is naive enough to believe that human truths exist and crazy enough to hunt them down, unleashing his poems with ‘bared teeth / polished and glistening,’ to track, capture, display and extol them.”—Campbell McGrath

New poetry

In his third collection of poetry, John Hoppenthaler surveils the remnants of an American Dream. What devotion might mean and look like in our time is at the book’s heart. The poems, written in a variety of styles, offer testimony and uncover, row by row, what remains viable in a garden they hope to resurrect.
