So many things seem like a BIG DEAL: fashionable clothes, food trends for healthfulness and coolness, personal turmoils, what someone else just said, the ever-charged political landscape, Instagram posts, extinct megafauna, avocado toast … the list could – and does – go on and on. Quirky, wry, sensitive, bitchy, and honest, It’s a Big Deal! interrogates the ways we interpret and process the big deals of our twenty-first-century lives. Del Bucchia’s poetic voice is unique, delivering sharp humour and candid sincerity.

"There is no poet who writes quite like Del Bucchia – a ventriloquist with a pulse on our time."—Quill & Quire

"[It's a Big Deal!] is a lovely, smart collection to read, especially when every little thing does feel like a big deal."—Arc Poetry Magazine

"Dina Del Bucchia's It's a Big Deal "expos[es] how the... conflicting attitudes [of Christian rhetoric and nihilistic hedonism] underpin so much of modern North American culture"—Winnipeg Free Press
