The Martian's Regress Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

**SHORTLISTED FOR THE TS ELIOT PRIZE 2020**From the winner of the Costa Poetry AwardA lone martian returns to Earth.

He leaves behind him a hardened survivalist culture, its muddled myths and songs, its continued abuse of the environment that sustains it.

During this journey back to the now-broken and long-abandoned mother planet, the martian begins to consider his own uncertain origins, and his own future. Cut off from his people, the martian's story is that of the individual: his duty at odds with his desire; the race of which he's still a part playing always on his mind, as well as the race that once was.

This is the story of what life becomes when stripped of all that makes it worth living - of what humans become when they lose their humanity. The Martian's Regress is a brilliant, provocative, often darkly comic work that explores what a fragile environment eventually makes of those who persist in tampering with it.
