This week on the pod, Jason sits down with Anne-Marie Turza—one of their all-time favourite poets—to discuss her latest collection FUGUE WITH BEDBUG. The pair chat about writing the microscopic, poetry’s untapped intertextual potential, their mutual love of Tolstoy's ANNA KARENINA, and much more.

Anne-Marie Turza is the author of two collections of poetry, THE QUIET (Anansi, 2014), and FUGUE WITH BEDBUG (Anansi, 2022), and the chapbook SLIP MINUTE (Baseline, 2018). She was a finalist for the Bronwen Wallace Award and the Gerald Lampert Memorial Award. Her debut collection, a Globe and Mail Top 100 book, was released to critical acclaim. She holds an MFA from the University of Victoria and a Bachelor of Nursing Science from Queen’s University. She lives in the territory of the lək̓ʷəŋən, the Songhees, Esquimalt and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples.
