"On the heels of the colossal success of Eunoia, a prose poem whose five chapters each use only one vowel — winner of the 2002 Griffin Prize, and by some counts, the bestselling book of Canadian poetry, ever — Bök went casting around for a new project. He came across news of a scientist at the Pacific North West National Laboratory, Pak Chung Wong, who translated the lyrics to “It’s a Small World After All” into the four-letter nucleotide alphabet of DNA, which he then inserted into deinococcus radiodurans, a bacterium that can withstand extreme heat and cold, acid, otherwise-deadly radiation, even the vacuum of space." Michael Lista on Christian Bök • National Post
