From November 2nd till November 12th 89books is happy to host our new resident Callum Royle.
During the residency Callum will be working on a new book about Palermo.
Nights like these, I think about how sharp and sure I felt when I was wading through the snow in minus 15 degrees, my ankles rolling over rocks that covered uneven train tracks, passing unkempt market goods and sparking live wires.
See, I come from Melbourne, one of “the most liveable cities” on earth, lightyears away from the scenario I am describing. However, it is here, etching the words on my very own tombstone, where the strangling grip of uncertainty fills my lungs the deepest.
Storytelling is the role I can play in the inevitable victory over the forces of all things wicked.
