Completely by accident, Senthil Vasuthevan and Valmira Surroi start chatting on Facebook. He is working on his doctorate in philosophy in Berlin, she is studying art history in Marburg. For seven days they tell one another about their lives, never meeting in person. Their messages touch on their families, fleeing from civil wars, their childhood in refugee homes and their times of school and study. In his debut novel, Senthuran Varatharajah writes insightfully about origins and arrival, remembrance and forgetting, and about the cracks in our lives which only time can reveal.
Searching for a language of one’s own – a poetic dialogue about spaces of asylum.
