Immerse yourself in what has long enraptured both the sensualist and the scientist - the natural world. Seismic in its permeable temporal and geographic states, Beneath the Liquid Skin examines humankind's response to the environment: our pursuit of milder emotional, political, social, and cultural climes; our flight from ecological catastrophe; and our refuge in safer mythical domains. Although her habitat is exotic, Berit Ellingsen saturates - with humanistic and preternatural harmony - a remarkably vulnerable yet enduring surface.
Berit Ellingsen’s novel Not Dark Yet was published by Two Dollar Radio in November 2015. She is the author of the short story collections Beneath the Liquid Skin and Vessel & Solsvart, and the novel Une Ville Vide (PublieMonde). Her work has appeared in W.W. Norton’s Flash Fiction International, SmokeLong Quarterly, Unstuck, Litro, Up Here – The North at the Center of the World, and other places, and been nominated for the Pushcart Prize, Best of the Net, and the British Science Fiction Award. Berit divides her time between Norway and Svalbard in the Arctic.
