a novel by David G. Lanoue
David Lanoue's new book Haiku
Wars is a lampoon of the internecine conflicts in the
small pond of literary haiku. The protagonist, Poet, must unravel the
mystery of a missing manuscript in a single day or face dire
consequences. Along the way, and guided by his pet ferret Oscar, he
interacts with sundry poets, each with his or her own agenda—political
and poetic. The resulting work is full of laughter and enlightenment,
and a window into the quirky world of one-breath poetry and the "wars"
that consume it. Awarded a 2009 Merit Book Award Special Prize for Best Haiku Novel by the Haiku Society of America.
