Flashbacks From The Flow Zone

9781742707280

Tom Crago owns and runs a video game development studio. Flashbacks from the Flow Zone is his love letter to the business trip: a raging anti-memoir that’s all about the ride. You may not think that a book about the actual experience of travel – in planes, buses, trains, cars – about airports- would be all that interesting. But you’d be wrong. This is a fascinating and often hilarious account of what it is like to travel for work and becomes a tribute to all forms of human transport warts and all, as well as offering keen insights into the minds of people in all the various countries he visits.

From the author of ‘The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry’ comes a new novel telling Queenie Hennessy’s side of the story. While Harold Fry is walking the length of England to save her, she begins a new letter to tell him everything, confessing to secrets she has hidden for twenty years. A volunteer at the hospice where Queenie is living her last days points out: “Even though you’ve done your travelling, you’re starting a new journey too.”

Queenie thought her first letter would be the end of the story. She was wrong. It was the beginning.
