Review of Appetite
From Doug Watling , Canadian Library Association (1990)

Appetite by Mia Anderson

Anderson, on the evidence of this book, is a gifted poet blessed and saddled with a feverish gush of ideas…. Like much of the book, “The Saugeen Sonata” is celebratory—the mood is like a contagion throughout these pages…. Appetite is dense with delirious energy, absurdist word play, and sheer love of language…, and the entire volume is unremittingly allusive. I spent half my reading time scouring the dictionary.
