Description

A fictional ''documentary'' presented in the form of ten flip books in a beautiful slipcase, this evocative artist's book tells the story of a retired political speech writer. Surrounded by memories, his connection with the outside world takes the form of a daily broadcast from within his home. This is no podcast: passersby see a perplexing array of loudspeakers wired to the outside of his house, and perhaps stop to listen for a few moments each day. From Sri Lankan publisher Raking Leaves, this story addresses issues of repression and free expression, and how political power and human desires meet.
