SHORTLISTED FOR THE TS ELIOT PRIZE FOR POETRY 2020

“Whip-smart, sonically gorgeous” – Rae Armantrout, author of the Pulitzer Prize winning Versed

When Louis Pasteur observed the process of fermentation, he noted that, while most organisms perished from lack of oxygen, some were able to thrive as ‘life without air’. In this capricious, dreamlike collection, characters and scenes traverse states of airlessness, from suffocating relationships and institutions, to toxic environments and ecstatic asphyxiations. Both compassionate and ecologically nuanced, this innovative collection bridges poetry and prose to interrogate the conditions necessary for survival.
