written by Olga Tokarczuk, translated by Jennifer Croft - Fiction

Olga Tokarczuk’s novel 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. 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?
