Anecdote, fragment, diary and sound poetry come together to create the story of Jay, an orphan whose parents are killed in a house fire.

As Jay lives and works alone on his prairie farm, Catch as Catch is the scrapbook that documents his solitary passage through the life experiences that form his identity. In the absence of a family, Jay converses with the devil, using him as a looking glass in which to see his own reflection, assure himself of his own existence and deconstruct the reader's conventional sense of evil.

A mixture of rural prairie setting and bizarre characters such as Jay, the devil, Apology, Catch and Chorus gives Catch as Catch a surreal quality uncommon in new Canadian poetry.
