God of Missed Connections
"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."
