John Taylor, écrivain américain, vit à Angers. Il est connu dans les pays anglo-saxons pour ses essais sur la littérature française contemporaine, pour ses traductions de poètes français ainsi que pour son œuvre personnelle, dont sept titres ont été traduits en France. Caroline François-Rubino vit et travaille dans les Pyrénées-Atlantiques. Ses peintures révèlent une perception intime de l'espace et de la lumière et sa passion pour le paysage trouve écho auprès des poètes. L'écrivain et l'artiste ont déjà réalisé en commun Boire à la source, paru aux éditions Voix d'encre. Ils se rencontrent à nouveau à travers ces Hublots. Deux voyages parallèles, dans la réalité et dans la création, qui explorent le lointain et le proche, l'extérieur et l'intérieur, le soi et la nature.
On a cold day in January, J. Mendelssohn wakes in his Upper East Side apartment. Old and frail, the former judge waits for the heating to come on the clacking of the pipes stirring memories of his past. He meets his son for lunch, who departs mid-meal, leaving Mendelssohn to eat alone. Moments after he leaves the restaurant, he is brutally attacked. Detectives comb through footage of his movements, their work like that of a poet searching for a word that will suddenly make sense of everything.

As an older man, Juan Diego will take a trip to the Philippines, but his dreams and memories will travel with him ; he is most alive in his childhood and early adolescence in Mexico. 'An aura of fate had marked him,' John Irving writes. 'The chain of events, the links in our lives - what leads us where we’re going, the courses we follow to our ends, what we don’t see coming, and what we do - all this can be mysterious, or simply unseen, or even obvious.'.
