Shortlisted and named "a very close contender" for the 2013 Independent Foreign Fiction PrizeA novel of philosophy and love, politics and waltzes, history and the here-and-now, Andres Neuman's Traveller of the Century is a journey into the soul of Europe, penned by one of the most exciting South-American writers of our time.'Every year hundreds of books are published but rarely comes a book that reminds us of why we loved reading in the first place, that innermost quest for words and dreams. Traveller of the Century is a literary gem' Elif ShafakA traveller stops off for the night in the mysterious city of Wandernburg.

Through a series of memorable encounters with starkly different characters, Neuman takes the reader on a hypothetical journey back into post-Napoleonic Europe, subtly evoking its parallels with our modern era.At the heart of the novel lies the love story between Sophie and Hans. They are both translators, and between dictionaries and bed, bed and dictionaries,they gradually build up their own fragile common language.

About the Author:

Andres Neuman was born in 1977 in Buenos Aires and now lives in Granada, Spain. He was selected one of Granta's Best Young Spanish-Language Novelists, and included in Hay's Bogota 39 list. He has published numerous novels, short stories, essays and poetry collections. Traveller of the Century won the 2009 Alfaguara Prize and the National Critics Prize. Pushkin Press will publish his latest novel, Hablar Solos, in 2014.

Review:

The literature of the twenty-first century will belong to Neuman and a few other blood brothers of his -- Roberto Bolano A beautiful, accomplished novel: as ambitious as it is generous, as moving as it is smart -- Juan Gabriel Vasquez The Guardian A work of true beauty and scintillating intelligence by a writer of prodigious talents ... books as stimulating, erudite and humane as this do not come along very often -- Richard Gwyn Independent A big, utterly captivating murder mystery and love story, full of history and politics and the hottest sex in contemporary fiction Telegraph Very few novels in world literature can build up an atmosphere as deftly and convincingly as the Traveller of the Century has done. This is a wonderful novel of ideas. It is a story of love, loneliness and journeys, spiritual and intellectual. Andres Neuman's story will envelop you like a morning fog and when you have finished reading, when the fog dissolves, you might see the world differently. Every year hundreds of books are published but rarely comes a book that reminds us of why we loved reading in the first place, that innermost quest for words and dreams. Traveller of the Century is a literary gem. -- Elif Shafak
