      Tishani Doshi, an award-winning poet and dancer of Welsh-Gujarati descent, introduces and reads five poems from Everything Begins Elsewhere (2012), her second collection of poems. These poems are powerful meditations born on the joineries of life and death, union and separation, memory and dream, with the body as their central theme, but taking this beyond the corporeal to challenge the more metaphysical borders of space and time. As much about loss as they are about reclamation, Doshi’s poems guide us through an ‘underworld of longing and deliverance’, making the exhilarating claim that through the act of vanishing, we may be shaped into existence again. Neil Astley filmed her reading poems from the book after her reading at Ledbury Poetry Festival on 8 July 2012. Here she reads these poems: 'The Art of Losing', 'Walking Around' (after Neruda), 'The Memory of Wales' (a sestina), 'The Adulterous Citizen' and 'Homecoming'. Tishani Doshi's work is included by permission of her publishers. Everything Begins Elsewhere was published by Bloodaxe Books in the UK and by HarperCollins in India in 2012, and by Copper Canyon Press in the US in 2013.
