“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
Thank you for your support!!!!

I am honored and so grateful for the amazing reviews and responses to my book The Brubury Tales that continue to come in.
Just today, an in-depth book review of The Brubury Tales was posted at Classical Carousel, an exceptional literary blog that reviews classic books by dead authors almost exclusively. But, because the site was already taking on Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, The Brubury Tales (my homage to Chaucer’s amazing work) was chosen to be included in a side-by-side reading challenge of old and new! That decision alone was a huge honor and an awesome reminder to me of how lucky I am to keep finding an audience for such an unusual book — based on a work that means so very much to me.
You can read the full review of The Brubury Tales here.
And please be sure to check out the full reviews of The Canterbury Tales as well, and all the many Classical Carousel reviews of some of the best books by some of the best dead writers ever.
The Brubury Tales is available in paperback and ebook formats at Amazon.
The Brubury Tales is an ambitious homage to Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. It takes Chaucer’s story and frame to Los Angeles just after the riots, where seven security guards on the graveyard shift swap tales in a hilarious storytelling competition for Christmas vacation time.
