"David Connolly brings to his writing the same extraordinary courage that sustained him as a foot soldier in Vietnam. The poems in Lost In America bristle with passion and compassion, wry wit and plainspoken authority. His voice is as eloquent and powerful as any that has yet risen from the ashes of the late American debacle in Indochina."
----W.D. Ehrhart, editor, Carrying The Darkness: The Poetry of the Viet Nam War
Rippling with the authenticity of a grunt's grunt, these fierce poems grapple with ghosts--dead and living Brothers, kindred enemies, bewildered parents, spouses, and kids--to chase that elusive redemption lost in America.
----Vince Gotera, author of Radical Visions: Poetry by Vietnam Veterans
