Hardcover in pictorial dust jacket. Hand Numbered, SIGNED and Dated by Sohrab Hura. Limited Edition of only 600 individually signed and numbered copies issued worldwide (already out of print). It was in the summer of 1999 when my mother was diagnosed with an acute case of Paranoid Schizophrenia. The doctors, in retrospect, had said that she had already started developing the symptoms many years prior to that.Symptoms that nobody had noticed. But it was the break up with my father that caused her condition to suddenly come alive and then deteriorate. Over the years, the walls of our home started to peel off, people had stopped coming to our home because my mother was too scared to let anybody in and all that remained were the traces of a life that no longer existed.
Our initial years were spent hiding from the world. Hers out of paranoia and mine out of embarrassment and anger at who she had become. But after all these years Ive realized that my mother had never stopped loving me.
Life is Elsewhere is a journal of my life, my family, my love, my friends, my travels, my sheer need to experience all that is about to disappear and so in a way Im attempting to connect my own life with the world that I see with a hope to find my reality in it. And this journey will perhaps lead to reconciliation with my own life.
