Onion Man by Kathryn Mockler is being launched at the Triple Fall Launch next week Thursday, November 17, 2011 at Slack’s Restaurant (562 Church St. Toronto, ON). Come out and celebrate its publication along with two other publications by Tightrope Books, How to Get a Girl Pregnant and Prick. Pick up a copy, grab a seat, munch on a snack and enjoy an eventful and entertaining evening.
Onion Man is no ordinary book of poetry. It is a string of poems linked together to make a fascinating and poignant read that will make you think. The authors wit will make you laugh, while the characters will get sympathy from you in this sad tale of hardships. An eighteen-year-old girl gives her point of view in her time spent at a corn canning factory over the summer. She talks about her boyfriend Clinton, her alcoholic mother, a terminally ill grandfather and the mysterious man who peels an onion and eats it like an apple.
It is sure to grab and keep your attention and question your life and how you got there. As you turn each page it is like peeling off a layer off an onion, and finding something that you did now know previously. Each page is unique in that it is its own little piece and yet it flows with the entire book.
Enjoy ONION MAN by Kathryn Mockler and each and every layer.
