Al principio de Los errantes, la narradora esboza un autorretrato que es también una poética: «A todas luces yo carecía de ese gen que hace que en cuanto se detiene uno en un lugar por un tiempo más o menos largo, enseguida eche raíces. (...) Mi energía es generada por el movimiento: el vaivén de los autobuses, el traqueteo de los trenes, el rugido de los motores de avión, el balanceo de los ferrys.» Inquieta como ella, esta novela no se detiene ni un momento: en bus, avión, tren y ferry, la acompaña a saltos de país en país, de tiempo en tiempo,

IDIOMA ORIGINAL
WINNER OF THE MAN BOOKER INTERNATIONAL PRIZEAS FEATURED IN THE NEW YORK TIMESFrom the internationally acclaimed author of Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead, a visionary work of fiction with “echoes of Sebald [and] Kundera…[There’s] no better travel companion in these turbulent, fanatical times” (The Guardian).A seventeenth-century Dutch anatomist discovers the Achilles tendon by dissecting his own amputated leg. 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.
