G. Sebald" (Annie Proulx) "A magnificent writer." --Svetlana Alexievich, Nobel Prize-winning author of Secondhand Time "A beautifully fragmented look at man's longing for permanence.... Ambitious and complex." --Washington Post From the incomparably original Polish writer Olga Tokarczuk, Flights interweaves reflections on travel with an in-depth exploration of the human body, broaching life, death, motion, and migration. Chopin's heart is carried back to Warsaw in secret by his adoring sister. A woman must return to her native Poland in order to poison her terminally ill high school sweetheart, and a young man slowly descends into madness when his wife and child mysteriously vanish during a vacation and just as suddenly reappear. Through these brilliantly imagined characters and stories, interwoven with haunting, playful, and revelatory meditations, Flights explores what it means to be a traveler, a wanderer, a body in motion not only through space but through time. Where are you from? Where are you coming in from? Where are you going? we call to the traveler. Enchanting, unsettling, and wholly original, Flights is a master storyteller's answer.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Olga TokarczukPublisher: Riverhead BooksPublished: 08/14/2018ISBN: 9780525534198Pages: 416Weight: 1.10lbsSize: 8.30h x 5.60w x 1.50dAward: National Book Awards - FinalistReview Citations: Library Journal Prepub Alert 03/15/2018 pg. 74Kirkus Reviews 06/01/2018Publishers Weekly 05/28/2018Publishers Weekly 06/04/2018 pg. 30Library Journal 08/01/2018 pg. 90
