Cover of In My Garden of Mutants by Volha Hapeyeva

In My Garden of Mutants

Translations often seem to emerge from serendipidy, and I first encountered the award-winning Belarusian poet Volha Hapeyeva through Nora Gomringer, the Swiss-German author who we both translate. Since then, I’ve been enchanted by her poems: off-kilter yet sensitive, elliptical yet urgent. I’m absolutely thrilled to have a dual-language collection of Volha’s work out with Arc Publications, supported by an English PEN Award grant.
