In collaboration with Danny CaineEl Dorado Freddy’s is a literary yet goofy book about American food and identity, "a visual and poetic consideration of nostalgia, chicken fingers, parenting, identity, and politics," writes Caine, whose funny, deceptively accomplished poems—tackling such subjects as Olive Garden, Applebee’s, and the conundrum of Pizza Hut cheese—are paired with Tara Wray’s color-drenched images. Set in the Midwest, where people eat at chain restaurants even when they know better, El Dorado Freddy’s is a playful book about a serious business.
