Twelve flights. Twelve travellers. Twelve stories.
In David Szalay's masterful short story series, twelve travellers circumnavigate the globe en route to see lovers, children, parents, brothers and sisters, or nobody at all. From London to Madrid, Dakar to Sao Paolo, Seattle to Hong Kong, and beyond, these are stories of lives in turmoil, each in some way touching the next.
Today: a son flies in to see his increasingly frail and forgetful father in Delhi...
