entre-Ban is a collection of notes taken by Bhanu Kapil during the writing of her 2015 book, Ban en Banlieue. Inside are deletions, dedications, invitations, the smell of burnt hair, caves, violence. The fragmented text oscillates between the global and the hyper-local, the past and the present, the institutional and the personal, in its steady unfolding of experience and history. entre-Ban was written, in Kapil’s own words: “...for anyone who is oily, overly present, or existing beneath a dominant gaze.”

Bhanu Kapil is the author of five books, most recently Ban en Banlieue (Nightboat Books, 2015) and the re-issue of Incubation: a space for monsters (Kelsey Street Press, 2017). Born in the U.K. to Indian parents, she now lives and works in Colorado. Her current long-term projects include a re-writing [emptying out] of “Ban”— of which a succession of mutations and deletions are included in this chapbook. She is also writing a novel on yellow paper, a re-telling of the childhood classic, The Secret Garden.
