Jason Anthony worked in Antarctica for several years, and has been writing about it ever since. Many of his early Antarctic publications were lyric essays, the meeting place of poetry and the essay form, but in recent years narrative has crept in (as it tends to do). His first book, Hoosh: Roast Penguin, Scurvy Day, and Other Stories of Antarctic Cuisine (University of Nebraska Press), an award-winning narrative and culinary history of the Antarctic, came out in 2012. He is currently working on, among other things, a book devoted to Antarctic landscape and comprised of these lyrical fragments. His website is a dusty untended museum of his early Antarctic writings and photographs.
