Description


Schizophrene traces the intersections of migration and mental illness as they unfold in post-Partition diasporic communities. Bhanu Kapil brings forward the question of a healing narrative and explores trauma and place through a somatic, poetic and cross-cultural psychiatric enquiry. Who was here? Who will never be here? Who has not yet arrived and never will? Towards an arrival without being, this notebook-book returns a body to a site, the shards re-forming in mid-air: for an instant.

About the Author


BHANU KAPIL is a British-born writer of Indian origin who lives in Colorado. She is the author of three full-length collections of experimental prose: The Vertical Interrogation of Strangers, Incubation: a space for monsters, and humanimal [a project for future children].
