About the Book
101 Nights is a collection of 101 poems that bring to the reader the rawness of life and of love attained and lost. Coupled with images from the author's paintings, his brush and pen strokes create a fleeting image of the quixotic adventurer that is artistry of Houshang Wekili.
I have always had an interest in writing and photography. An invitation from a friend to travel with him to the Democratic Republic of Congo led to an adventure and a reawakening of my interest in writing, photography and travel. The images and thoughts from my trip to such a distant land resulted in my book about my travels to the Congo.
