If you haven’t heard about this book of satirical poems, all of which riff on the rom com film genre, now’s your moment. 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. Its poems are irreverent, playful, and funny. We’ve been looking forward to this book all summer, and now it’s here!
Join Dina Del Bucchia and Daniel Zomparelli for the Toronto launch, tomorrow evening at the Belljar Café! If you’re not in Toronto – and many of us are not – then you can order your copy today ($19.95) and join us for the Vancouver launch of Rom Com on Thursday, October 15th.
