Written in the near absence of creative works by Ukrainian Canadians of her generation, "God of Missed Connections" is a breakthrough collection by one of Canada's leading young poets. This book is profound, devastating, and draws on Ukraine's brave and bloody history as a means to explore the author's place in the contemporary world.
"This book explores a century of cultural assimilation in the West, an experience that is not unique to a Ukrainian- Canadian sensibility. In this book, I wanted to capture the sense of what it feels like to not know where you're from, to be looking for connections, and to come up with ghosts. "God of Missed Connections" is just the way I've gone about sifting through my own cultural detritus. What makes it through time, what doesn't? That's what interests me."
