A poetic cartography: John Freeman on 'Maps'
Date created :
The destination and the journey are two sides of the same coin when it comes to John Freeman’s poetry collection "Maps" and its French translation "Vous êtes Ici", published by Actes Sud. The editor, author and poet joins us in the studio to talk about finding inspiration for his work in transit, in lacunae and in the streets of Paris. We discuss the power wielded by publishers (and readers) and how economic inequality is taking its toll on the city of New York.
