Book of the Week: This Is Hilarious

hryciuk_thisishilariouscoverMarshall Hryciuk has long enjoyed a reputation for disrupting the comfortable flow of the haiku (and any other) world. Proof that his irreverence (much of it self-referential) dates back decades can be had from his first writings, such as this early chapbook, from Unfinished Monument Press in 1985.

You can read the entire book in the THF Digital Library.

Do you have a chapbook published 2009 or earlier you would like featured as a Book of the Week? Contact us for details.

Haiku featured in the Book of the Week Archive are selected by Jim Kacian, following a concept first explored by Tom Clausen, and are used with permission.

feeling me for the first time, i discover you’re lefthanded
just changed he lay on my belly the warm swell of pee
this is hilarious “ being me
