At precisely the cultural moment you were hoping for, a dream team of smart, sexy, brunette poets has passionately co-authored an intelligent collection of satirical poetry that both celebrates and capsizes the romantic comedy. This is Rom Com by Dina Del Bucchia and Daniel Zomparelli. Get ready to fall in love.
From the origin of the genre to its contemporary expressions, the poems in Rom Com deconstruct as well as engage in dialogue with romantic comedy films and the pop culture, celebrities, and tropes that have come to be associated with them. These irreverent, playful, weird, and comedic poems come in a variety of forms, fully engaging in pop culture, without a judgmental tone.
Join Dina and Daniel as they launch Rom Com!
The dynamic duo will also read from Rom Com in the poetry bus at WORD Vancouver on September 27.
