Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Letters from Robots is the first full-length collection of poetry by Diana Salier, an emerging writer whose run at what might be called 'confessional poetry' is built around turning many of the conventions of her forbears upside down. While a lot of contemporary literature still manifests the dour tones of scribes such as Carver and Bukowski, Salier's work brings both humility and humor back into the equation without sacrificing any heart. The result is a look into the poet's soul that conveys the everyday traumas of human existence without leaving the reader wrung out. Letters from Robots is at once satisfying and solid, representing elements of verse that might some day bring aficionados of other arms of literature back into the sadly diminished number of people who identify themselves as poetry fans.

Review:

"Letters from Robots is a collection of poetry from Diana Salier, as she explores life with and without emotion, to gain a perspective on its force in our lives. With humor and poignancy throughout, Letters from Robots is a strong addition to poetry collections, highly recommended." Willis M. Buhle, Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

Review:

"Rather than taking the typical whiny approach to the end of a relationship and crying: 'Woe is me!' Salier takes you along for the ride and you become her comrade. Our loneliness is different: she experiences hers, and I experience mine. But throughout her book of poetry, we can experience it together. Salier points out that 'home is just a rest stop where / the vending machines have run out / of king sized snickers bars.' And I agree." Aimee Nicole, Newpages review
