Alice and Antius

Alice and Antius is an illustrated narrative poem following the lives of two lovers—a scientist and poet—through a climate apocalypse. Survivors of a lost time, they enter a labyrinth filled with the haze of nostalgia, loss, meaning, and hope. At turns mythic and intimate, wry and lyrical, Alice and Antius show us the power of words to trace our path across the shadow of ruin.

‘Pained, tender, and vividly rendered … an elegy for the Anthropocene.’—BookLife by Publishers Weekly

‘A heartfelt take on our current situation with all the imagery and poetic license of our best canonical works of poetry.’ —Independent Book Review
