From the PublisherADVANCE PRAISE FOR NOMAD'S HOTEL
“A book for anyone who has ever felt that eternal traveler’s longing to see more, to know more, to live fully in every place they inhabit.”
-Madeleine Thien, author of Certainty
“A jewel of a travel book, free of pretension, full of easy adventure, fresh with childlike wonder for the world.”
PRAISE FOR NOMAD'S HOTEL
"These journeys of prizewinning Dutch novelist Nooteboom are as much head trips as passages through space....Nooteboom conveys the excitement of things he doesn't understand, signs and languages he can't decipher, a culture that rebuffs him and the refreshing shock of the wholly unknown...A profound engagement with travel on the astral plane."
"[A] lyrical collection...Nooteboom weaves a compelling, perceptive, and yet wondering view of the places he visits...Armchair travelling at its best but also of interest to anyone who enjoys outstanding writing."
"[Nooteboom] has spent a career traveling for the purpose of producing books and essays, and the results are stunning, as is shown in this collection."
