Goodbye, 2018: Tishani Doshi

As 2018 ends, and we turn to 2019, I felt like asking a few people who inspired me this year to reflect on the year that was.


We start the conversation with the ever-inspiring poet Tishani Doshi.

What's the nicest thing you did for someone in 2018?


I didn't disown my dog for finding another woman to call home. He moves between my house and the neighbour's. He's an independent spirit, so I honour it, even though it breaks my heart.

Has 2018 been a good year for you in terms of productivity and creativity? What all did you work on this year?


I finished a novel. Wrote poems. Interviewed about 35 writers. Published lots of articles and essays. Did not improve my Italian or cooking skills, but walked many miles, jogged a few, performed on many stages. Spent lots of time with beloveds. 

Which film that you saw this year changed something in you?


The Favourite by Yorgos Lanthimos


Which song/s did you listen to on loop this year?


Elgar's Cello concerto and Young Thug's Anybody

Best book you read this year?


ARGH - impossible question. Best book is always the book you're reading - Natalie Shapero's Hard Child (copper canyon press)

Please pick a few words to represent how 2018 has been for you.


2018 was large, funny, generous, wandering, grounded, animal-friendly. 

What's your 2018 takeaway?

NEED. MORE. LANGUIDITY What's 2019 looking like for you? What are your goals/plans/dreams for the year ahead?

MORE. OF. THE. SAME
