Buffet World is one of those books that is funny but also utterly serious. That’s because the sublime and ridiculous, the outlandish and quotidian, are, in the world Mancini describes, two sides of the same gilded coin. In the former, popular music serves as simply another mode of interpellation, commodifying pleasure as politics.

There is still a great deal of investment, among writers, scholars and readers, in the idea of "canons" of "great books" that cultured persons are supposed to have read. Mancini's talk will introduce his proposal that certain. Mancini's talk will introduce his proposal that certain texts, positioned para-canonically (alongside or nearby canons) antagonize the mythologies of literary canons. While functioning as "paracanonic," texts undermine the privileged aesthetic certainty that canons embody.

Poetry. Exploring the relationships between industrial food production, eating, culture and the politics of language, Mancini organizes his controlled palette of words and images around metaphors of consumption and the formal device of the list. The numbers and statistics that fill the book stand as a critique of the grotesquely inhumane scales of capitalist production today—in—kind retort to the brutality of economic—fundamentalist abstractions that increasingly determine policy and regulate inner lives. Incisive humor permeates BUFFET WORLD. The poems capture Mancini's diamond wit, as well as his dissatisfaction with the conditions of a world built on so many systemic cruelties. BUFFET WORLD underlines our inescapable complicity as (constantly) both victims and victimizers in a system that should leave us choked with rage, but more often dazzles us with a surreal spectacle of false hope.
