Our Days in Vaudeville

Mansfield Press, 2013

From Mansfield Press:

In this book—the first of its kind by a Canadian poet—Stuart Ross takes the stage in the vaudeville act that is collaborative poetry, with writers from across the country. Collaboration allows Ross to be part of poems—and the kinds of poems—he would never write on his own. He believes the best poems are those that explode the author’s own intentions. The results are sometimes beautifully harmonic, sometimes chaotically slapstick—but they are always as unpredictable as a live performance. And with the occasional exquisite pratfall.
