Subhash Jaireth’s collection of essays inspired by writers such as Franz Kafka, Marina Tsvetaeva, Mikhail Bulgakov, Paul Celan, Hiromi Ito, and Dutch philosopher Baruch Spinoza, and their writing, will be launched by author Ross Gibson, professor, creative and cultural research, University of Canberra, on Wednesday, 4 March, 5.30pm, at the National Library of Australia Bookshop in Parkes Pl W, Canberra. Jaireth believes the works of these writers enriched his own life, igniting in him the urge to travel both physically and spiritually, culminating in his book Spinoza’s Overcoat: Travels with writers and poets.
As a novelist, poet, and translator, Jaireth understands the power of words across languages. Born in India, Jaireth spent nine years in Russia studying geology and Russian literature. In 1986, he migrated to Australia. He has published writing in Hindi, English and Russian and his novel After Love (Transit Lounge 2012) was published in Spain in 2018.
