Literature is a grand and ancient conversation about what it is to live in the world. That conversation can be comedic, challenging or angry. It can be parodic, poignant or frightening. It can be romantic, melancholic or unsettling. Verandah 28 provides us with some unforgettable interventions in the conversation called literature, and it provides us with a compelling invitation to listen in.
