"A Complete Encyclopedia of Different Types of People" is not your average reference book. It turns a series of sociological case studies into a functional encyclopedia that doubles as an achingly funny collection of poems. "Bridesmaids," "Day Traders," and "Number Crunchers" are all dutifully cataloged in a series of luminously strange, compellingly original lyric and prose poems.
