“Frank Mundo, author of the widely published essay, “How I Became a Mexican,” wields a knife you’ve seen, straight out of the kitchen drawer but somehow sharper than you remember, to carve the everyday tragedy and comedy of life right down to the bone. Mundo spares neither our sense of horror nor our funny bone, with poems that speak from the page like your childhood best friend peering over your shoulder.”
My other books, The Brubury Tales, Gary, the Four-Eyed Fairy and Other Stories, and Different are available in paperback or for Kindle at Amazon.com

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself? At what age did you start writing? Have you always written poetry? Who/what first inspired you to start writing? Who are your favorite poets?
I grew up with two cultures, so I was very familiar with German kinderlieder –
nursery rhymes and playground songs. Later I found my Dad’s book of Kipling’s poetry and was fascinated by it. I began keeping a journal around the age of twelve or thirteen. I often wrote poetry in it and eventually it became almost entirely poems, quotes, and notes of something said that had impressed upon me. In school, I encountered Ted Hughs and his landscapes, some Hilaire Belloc and W.H. Auden. My favourite poets are Patrick Kavanagh, Rainer Maria Rilke, Pablo Neruda, Elizabeth Bishop, W. B. Yeats, Simon Armitage and Sylvia Plath. I also read Frank Mundo, Helene Cordona and Brendan Constantine.
