Exile is a book exploring the possibility that the exilic condition might be some kind of refuge – that the refugee might be at home elsewhere. It takes its source in the opposition to nostalgia and to historical and mythical conditioning, without renouncing an alternative ‘we’. It can be brought close to my article ‘South as Exile’ on this site.



I´m grateful to Christopher Cozier who allowed the use of his powerfully evocative Castaway for the book´s cover
