Travel in the Mouth of the Wolf is a lyrical and highly visual modern-day fable. When a freak accident involving an infallible gambler, a truck full of chickens, and a gas pump leaves easygoing Iple deaf, he decides to travel to Antarctica. While wandering the tundra trying to reconstruct his hearing and memory, he makes a startling discovery below a sheet of ice. There he finds Isabella, a dinosaur and the last DNA repository of a wealth of human and prehuman knowledge. What follows is a mesmerizing detour into our species' fear and wonder at the nature of prediction in this comic yet harrowing novella in Soft Skull's ShortLit series.
