About

Christian Bök is the author not only of CRYSTALLOGRAPHY (1994), a pataphysical encyclopedia nominated for the Gerald Lampert Memorial Award, but also of EUNOIA (2001), a bestselling work of experimental literature, which has gone on to win the Griffin Prize for Poetic Excellence. Bök has recently released his next book, entitled THE XENOTEXT – BOOK 1 (2015), an "infernal grimoire" that outlines the conceptual groundwork for his ongoing project to encode a poem into the genome of an unkillable bacterium capable of surviving till the very last dawn, when the Sun itself expires. Bök teaches in the Department of English at the University of Calgary.
