Last week, expat author and traveller Christopher Allen interviewed me and Smitha about our book, Worlds Apart. The questions were so interesting, opening a space of reflection, like this one:
“When did it occur to you that you had something more than an email exchange? It is certainly much more. It's a compelling and insight-rich dialogue interspersed with poetry, essay and photography.”
The interview is both about the book, and about travelling and identity in general - and about the closeness distance can bring:
"Writing a letter -- especially to someone you don't know -- brings that out sometimes. Is it the easy conviviality of knowing that what is shared is unknown? I don't know."
I am happy how this interview turned out - which, like the book, is rather a dialogue between worlds, in a triangle of India / Germany / UK&Germany. There are also some images from China, India and Germany included:
some extra links:
