In Muddy Water: Conversations with 11 Poets documents the connections and diversity of poetry coming out of an eclectic group of Canadian poets. These poets range from established to emerging, traditional to experimental, and the dialogue created between them charts an expanse of themes and styles available to poetry readers. Robert Kroetsch comments on the poetic: "We live in Muddy Water as opposed to Clear Water. There is something there, but you only get signals, you see a ripple." Poetry is a record of contemporary language and, as such, provides a map of contemporary life; a torn and muddied map, but a map nonetheless. Muddy Water: Conversations with 11 Poets includes interviews with Robert Kroetsch, Dawne McCance, Catherine Hunter, Duncan Mercredi, George Amabile, Patrick Friesen, Todd Bruce, Melanie Cameron, Dennis Cooley, Jon Paul Fiorentino, and Mira Cook.
