Product Description

Sixty minutes into planetary lockdown, as gas clouds flare diabolically across the horizon, a burst pipe floods Selcan Peksan’s Istanbul apartment. Encircled by notebooks and companioned by her beloved German shepherd, the poet seeks to transcend claustrophobia and eco-anxiety by envisioning a future unpeopled planet supporting novel mutations of non-human life.

Selcan Peksan is a poet, researcher, and bassist. She is the author of three poetry collections in Turkish: Mağara Vardır (160. Kilometre, 2015; English edition, There Is a Cave, is being developed by Bored Wolves); the original edition of Slippage, İnsandan Sonra [After Humans] (Nod, 2020); and Bitki Kökleri, İnsan Avı (Everest, 2021); and is a founding editor of the Turkish poetry journal Moero. She lives in Istanbul with Maya, her German shepherd.
