close to elsewhere
close to elsewhere is a deconstructed family saga over three generations and two continents, where reality is mixed with the wish for such. The everyday life that constitutes the urgency of now is intersected with journeys in time and space to re-awaken flavours, smells and sensory impressions from elsewhere.
Joshua Kent Bookman
Joshua is the author of close to elsewhere [Hitom].
InClose to Elsewhere, Bookman borrows characters, narratives and feelings from existing pieces of literary fiction on migration and travelling. He is looking for the personal perspective and focuses on the human interaction with its immediate and distant environments. These fragments are syncreticised into contemporary life, where they instigate new meaning. The reader is reminded that migration is not a new phenomenon and that it affects also those that are comfortably travelling into the digital world.
