Originally published in America in 2006, and out of print for the last seven years, Incubation: a space for monsters is a formally innovative, hybrid-genre book that incorporates poetry and prose. Set in a shifting narrative environment, where human bodies, characters, and text are neither one thing nor another, this fragmentary-diaristic text journeys through the spaces in-between. Following protagonist Laloo—Cyborg, girl, mother, child, immigrant, settler—on a roadtrip through American landscapes, genre styles, and form, Incubation creates radical space for what is ‘monstrous’. In this document there is a celebration in the cobbling together of lives; global in scope, with an intimate focus on interior voice, this landmark text evidences the early innovations and talents of this T.S. Eliot prizewinning author.
