“What all the Fuss Is About Vol. 1” is a collection of poems that explores the paradox of what I call autobiographical surrealism. The speaker in the poems, in most cases a poet, is navigating through an absurd and comic terrain that uses, as its main tropes, mundane objects, workaday routines, the play of language itself, and the surprising observations found in the quotidian swirl of urban life.
