It's a Big Deal

A poetry collection by Dina Del Bucchia.

Dina Del Bucchia

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 21st-century lives. Del Bucchia's poetic voice is unique, delivering sharp humour and candid sincerity. (From Talonbooks)
