asks difficult questions about the Earth, its beings, and what lies ahead
for them; how do we look to the future on a planet that’s burning? How do we
come to terms with our grief, and what can we believe in? If the human race
destroys what we have, where will we go?
In this dystopian, searching book, Evans mixes absurdity
and wit with speculative, serious themes. Here, artificial
intelligence and robots will ‘cuddle you to sleep’, the melting permafrost will reveal its surprises, and we encoutner the very first human baby born in
space. Ultimately, Evans writes to acknowledge our responsibilities and interconnectedness with earth and all its
lifeforms, as well as to our future generations. These are vivid,
prescient poems of existence, and survival, which ask how we can still find joy
on a ruined planet.
