Think of a book, the title of which can be literally translated as “15 Minor Planets.”
Its a fairly artsy-fartsy literature-type travelogue. The 15 minor planets refer to 15 specific people the writer encountered on his travels who impacted him in some way.
The concept is that all these folk, and the writer himself, are all in their own little orbits and sometimes these orbits intersect for a brief period.
I was stupid enough to say that the literal translation is a shite title, so now I have to come up with something – anything! – better. Within the next hour. And I have a total thought-block.
