Straight Up Haiku
This debut collection of haiku is a hilarious departure from traditional nature-driven poetry into the madness of public busses, tedious chores and the search for love in the modern world. In 2001, Christine Freeland began a personal diary written solely in haiku format, and over time it evolved into this body of work. By condensing each day's events into just seventeen syllables, she captures and communicates subtle drama unlike any other memoir. Meet her friends and follow her through morning commutes, drunken nights out, and Sundays in bed. This witty look at the mundane offers proof that fact is often stranger than fiction.
