Description

The most unusual novel you will read all year, where you create your own story

‘An ingenious choose-your-own-adventure challenge… Who can travel, and on what conditions, is one of the primary human rights questions of our era, and The Wandering skilfully takes it on.’ Lauren Elkin, Guardian

You’ve grown roots, you’re gathering moss. You’re desperate to escape your boring life teaching English in Jakarta, to go out and see the world. So you make a Faustian pact with a devil, who gives you a gift, and a warning. A pair of red shoes to take you wherever you want to go.

Turn the page and make your choice.

You may become a tourist or an undocumented migrant, a mother or a murderer, and you will meet other travellers with their own stories to tell. Freedom awaits but borders are real. And no story is ever new.

‘Sets you free to roam the Earth… an incisive commentary on the cosmopolitan condition’ Tiffany Tsao

‘An electrifying novel about cosmopolitanism and global nomadism that keeps readers on their toes’ Book Riot

Winner of an English PEN Translates Award, and a Heim Translation Fund Grant from PEN America
