Another fantastic review for Kathryn Mockler’s Onion Man! Western News describes the poetry collection as “stark southwestern Ontario realism in its necessarily rawest form.” Read the review here [2].

 

Onion Man is a sparse and intense series of linked poems told from the point of view of an eighteen-year-old girl working for the summer at a corn-canning factory. The poems follow her relationships with her factory job, her boyfriend, her alcoholic mother, her terminally ill grandfather, and the man who every night “peels an onion and eats it as if it were an apple.”
