God of Missed Connections at Agora Review

Thanks to Aaron Tucker at Agora Review who just put up a very nice-looking interview I did with Rob Mclennen after a short trip to Ottawa to help launch How the Light Gets In, an anthology of Canadian Poetry that was just released in Ireland. Here's a snippet from the interview,"

"I wanted to write the book I couldn’t find. When I began this project I found it fascinating how many (hundreds!) of academic texts, memoirs, interviews, short stories, poems, documentary films, videos, paintings, collages, sculptures, websites, blogs, etc. are dedicated to the history of Ukraine and of Ukrainians in Canada—yet very few of these resources are produced by Ukrainian-Canadian authors of my generation. And almost none of these are creative works."

Thanks, Aaron.
