Hello Sunshine is a collection of poems and short stories by Ryan Adams, released on December 1, 2009. The book is published by Akashic Books.

Adams states that: "this is the book of verse where I wake up, where I see myself responding to a world with as much light and as much grace as whatever disappointment I felt. This is where I fell back in love with everything--this is my best work yet."[1] (Preorders of Hello Sunshine were shipped on 18 August 2009 by publisher Akashic Books).


Gawker said Adams' prose is like "shiny gold covered shit".[2] Indy Week said "the poems are petulant, myopic and petty".[3]
