The book — a translation of Kannada dalit poet Siddalingaiah’s autobiography, Ooru Keri — will be launched on September 20, 6.30 p.m. at Sapna Book House, Residency Road.

A Word With You, World is a vivid evocation of everyday life and labour, of conviviality and courage, of poverty and loss — a translation of Kannada dalit poet Siddalingaiah’s autobiography, Ooru Keri.

The book, translated from Kannada by S.R. Ramakrishna, is published by Navayana. As the critic D.R. Nagaraj says in his afterword, Siddalingaiah offers us a bonsai-like compression of life.

A Word With You, World will be launched on September 20, 6.30 p.m. at Sapna Book House, Residency Road, Bangalore. On the occasion, Siddalingaiah will be in conversation with writer Vivek Shanbhag.
