Publisher's Synopsis

*The most unusual novel you will read all year, where you create your own story*

'An ingenious choose-your-own-adventure challenge' Lauren Elkin, Guardian

Longlisted for the 2021 Stella Prize

You've grown roots, you're gathering moss. You're desperate to escape your boring life teaching English in Jakarta, to go out and see the world. So you make a Faustian pact with a devil, who gives you a gift, and a warning. A pair of red shoes to take you wherever you want to go.

Turn the page and make your choice.

You may become a tourist or an undocumented migrant, a mother or a murderer, and you will meet other travellers with their own stories to tell. Freedom awaits but borders are real. And no story is ever new.

'Sets you free to roam the Earth... an incisive commentary on the cosmopolitan condition' Tiffany Tsao

'An electrifying novel about cosmopolitanism and global nomadism that keeps readers on their toes' Book Riot


Winner of an English PEN Translates Award, and a Heim Translation Fund Grant from PEN America
