Flights

Tokarczuk, Olga

FLIGHTS, a novel about travel in the twenty-first century and human anatomy, is Olga Tokarczuk’s most ambitious to date.

It interweaves travel narratives and reflections on travel with an in-depth exploration of the human body, broaching life, death, motion, and migration.

From the seventeenth century, we have the story of the Dutch anatomist Philip Verheyen, who dissected and drew pictures of his own amputated leg.

From the eighteenth century, we have the story of a North African-born slave turned Austrian courtier stuffed and put on display after his death.

In the nineteenth century, we follow Chopin’s heart as it makes the covert journey from Paris to Warsaw.

In the present we have the trials of a wife accompanying her much older husband as he teaches a course on a cruise ship in the Greek islands, and the harrowing story of a young husband whose wife and child mysteriously vanish on a holiday on a Croatian island.

With her signature grace and insight, Olga Tokarczuk guides the reader beyond the surface layer of modernity and towards the core of the very nature of humankind.
