released into this fractured world of woe, this story, messenger, steady and slow your eyes to read as your hands to then turn each page a portal: welcoming return
THOT J BAP, Book One, features Bramah, a time-travelling locksmith and her orphan-apprentice The Beggar Boy. They use cunning and magic to outwit the evil Consortium and join seed savers and outcasts in a world ravaged by climate change and global disorder.
This innovative work, published by Nightwood Editions, alchemizes fantasy, epic poetry, philosophy, climate change activism and the politics of gender and race. The poem is simultaneously a dystopian tale, a family saga, an exploration of language, and a meditation on good and evil.
Let all evil die and the good endure
