Layers of Exile
Lawrence Feuchtwanger
Episode: P034
Broadcast dates: May 16 to May 29, 2022
Length: 34'' mins
Host: Ingrid Rose
Lawrence Feuchtwanger joins Ingrid Rose to discuss his work and read from his poetry book, Refugee Song, and from his unpublished novel, Skin.

Lawrence writes: …of the sweetness. tenderness, disillusionment and bitterness of growing up and coming of age amidst the tumult and aching beauty of South Africa

…of the legacy of wanderings and displacements of my parents, and their parents, and their parents’ parent’s parents, exiles and refugees from a hostile European anti-Semitism

…of my own self-imposed exile, drifting through continents and countries—from South Africa to England, through Europe and overland from Cairo back to Johannesburg and from there to Canada, to Vancouver and now here, Gabriola Island, grateful to live and write on the traditional lands of the Snuneymuxw First Nation.

Refugee Song is available from the publisher, Signature Editions or your favourite bookstore.
