‘It starts to rain as I step out of my hotel ....’ So begins Subhash Jaireth's striking collection of essays on the writers, and their writing, that have enriched his own life. The works of Franz Kafka, Marina Tsvetaeva, Mikhail Bulgakov, Paul Celan, Hiromi Ito, Dutch philosopher Baruch Spinoza and others ignite in him the urge to travel (both physically and in spirit), almost like a pilgrim, to the places where such writers were born or died or wrote.

Join author Subhash Jaireth, publisher & co-founder of Transit Lounge, Barry Scott, and Centenary Professor in Creative and Cultural Research, University of Canberra, Ross Gibson, for the launch of this meditation on the lives of poets & the power of words across languages.
