Andrés Neuman’s Traveller of the Century is an ambitious debut novel that invites the reader to look at the 19th century with 21st century eyes. Enigmatic traveller Hans stops between Saxony and Prussia, finding himself in a debate with an old organ-grinder. Youssef Ziedan’s Azazeel is set in the 5th century, an exquisitely crafted tale of a monk’s journey from Upper Egypt to Syria during a time of social upheaval.
