Activities of Daily Living

Activities of Daily Living
Larry O. Dean's latest poetry collection examines routine occupations that go on every day-reading and writing email, watching TV, going out to eat, working a job, parking the car, grocery shopping, and online purchasing. It includes both traditional and experimental poems in fixed and open forms, such as Oulipian, persona, metrical, sestina, found, a satiric sequence based on the zodiac, and more. Larry O. Dean was born and raised in Flint, Michigan. He teaches higher-ed creative writing, literature, and composition, and is a Poet-in-Residence in the public schools through the Poetry Center of Chicago's Hands on Stanzas program. "This collection is a voyage of discovery made all the more appealing for how it makes the reader laugh along the way. The places where humor collided with my expectations were where I gained the most and most clearly saw the ordinary as something new. These poems are so enjoyable, in fact, that it wasn't until after I had finished reading them that I realized that I was seeing poetry in unexpected places and looking for the hidden story under the most expected of words."--Eclectica "A collection of keen observations, people-watching, and imaginative detail, Activities for Daily Living breathes new life into the forgotten. Dean makes excellent work with romanticizing, doting over, and bringing a little attention to everyday objects."--Chicago Literati
