Synopsis

A huge international best seller, this ambitious novel plumbs the depths of our shared humanity to offer up a breathtaking insight into life, love, and literature itself.

A major hit in Germany that went on to become one of Europe’s biggest literary blockbusters.

Night Train to Lisbon is an astonishing novel, a compelling exploration of consciousness, the possibility of truly understanding another person, and the ability of language to define our very selves.

The story follows Raimund Gregorius, a 57-year-old Classics scholar, on a journey that takes him across Europe. Abandoning his job and his life and travelling with a dusty old book as his talisman, he heads for Lisbon in search of clues to the life of the book's Portuguese author, Amadeu de Prado.

As he gets swept up in his quest, he finds that the journey is also one of self-discovery, as he re-encounters all the decisions he has made - and not made - in his life, and faces the roads not travelled.

"I loved this exploration of how a character can walk away from his life, how he can explore, through words and conversations, another life (not just the present). There is a lot of wisdom in this book, and a lot of beautiful writing. Highly Recommended." - Goodreads Review.
