We are honored to be hosting poet (and indie bookstore owner!) Danny Caine to celebrate his new poetry anthology "Continental Breakfast."
“Danny Caine’s Continental Breakfast portrays suburban life in the Midwest with humor, pathos, and tender care. Populating chain restaurants, deserted shopping malls, and family Passover dinners, the characters of the poems narrate an experience that, while familiar to many, doesn’t often make it into the pages of poetry collections. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll raise your can of Bud Lite.”
-- Megan Kaminski, Author of Deep City
Continental Breakfast, an often-humorous book, explores the effect of mass commercialism on identity, love, religion, and the American landscape. From Kanye West at Waffle House to dead malls to Passover candy, the book questions how branding and celebrity function as filters through which we see the world.
Danny Caine has been published numerous times, and will release another poetry book in 2020. He owns The Raven Bookstore in Lawrence, Kansas. Read more about Danny and browse his poetry at his website: https://www.dannycaine.com/about.html.
