Greg Bem reviews Aaron Tucker's Catalogue d’Oiseaux : Toronto — Mainz-Kastel (2018)

Our pal Greg Bem was good enough to provide the first review for Aaron Tucker's Catalogue d’Oiseaux : Toronto — Mainz-Kastel (2018) at Goodreads. Thanks so much! You can see the original review here.
A compelling bundle of society and social life within and nearby Canadian cities, this sequence of the ongoing project of the same title carries the subtitle Toronto < __ > Mainz-Kastel and features life within those realms. The work is on the boundary between prose and poetry, a long descriptive cataloging (as the title suggests) of what can be found within a life within a space, as connected to other spaces. Ultimately the textual component of what is a larger project leaves the reader wanting more; but there is joy here, and strong writing, and a representation both true and beautiful.
