O ne of the fragment-chapters in this fascinating novel of fragments tells of a man who takes a particular book on his travels: a short one by the French-Romanian philosopher Emil Cioran. This reflects the existential preoccupations of Flights , whose central recurring tropes are physical movement, the mortal body and the meaning of home. It is a novel of intuitions as much as ideas, a cacophony of voices and stories seemingly unconnected across time and space, which meander between the profound and the facetious, the mysterious and the ordinary, and whose true register remains one of glorious ambiguity.

I first read this novel in Bulgarian translation, where the original Polish title has been kept: Bieguni. The bieguni , or wanderers, are an obscure and possibly fictional Slavic sect who have rejected settled life for an existence of constant movement, in the tradition of the travelling yogi, wandering dervishes or itinerant Buddhist monks who survive on the kindness of strangers.

And so she takes us to creepy basement museums where anatomical pathologies are preserved in jars; to lurid exhibitions of skinned human bodies; and deep into the minds and bodies of characters real and imagined, sometimes both. The more obviously fictional stories are no less fascinating — the poignant, thrillerish marital drama of Kunicki and his family, who disappear on a Croatian island; the portrait of the Mengele-like Dr Blau, who loves to cut up bodies; the disturbing one-sided correspondence to the Austrian emperor by a woman whose father, a former courtier and diplomat, was posthumously stuffed on account of being black.

They simply go to destinations or conduct raids. I can think of no better travel companion in these turbulent, fanatical times. Flights is published by Fitzcarraldo.
