Secession / Insecession


Andrew McEwan is the author of the book Repeater, shortlisted for the Gerald Lampert Award, which employs the ASCII binary code for letters to create poetry that has been described as “mesmerizingly lyrical and theoretically rigorous.” (Jacket2). He is also the author of the chapbooks Input/Output, This Book is Depressing, and Conditional. His recently completed manuscript considers the economic crises of the early 21st century through the language and ideas of early modern anatomies and descriptions of melancholia.
