Waterstones Says

From the author of the International Booker Prize-winning Time Shelter comes another mind-expanding adventure in the realms of memory, empathy and the history we can't escape, as the unnamed narrator tries to live with a pathological condition that leads him to wander into other people's memories.

'In the small and the insignificant - that's where life hides, that's where it builds its nest.'

Our unnamed narrator is not well. He suffers from attacks of 'pathological empathy', which cause him to wander unbidden into other people's memories. He moves from recollection to recollection - from a Bulgarian country fair in 1925, where he meets a Minotaur, to inside the mind of a slug, as it is swallowed by his own Grandfather.

Part family history, part coming-of-age story, part meditation on life in Communist Europe, The Physics of Sorrow is a dazzlingly inventive, mind-expanding novel from one of Europe's most important writers.
