**WINNER OF THE EDGE HILL SHORT STORY PRIZE 2019** Discover the brilliant new short story collection from the Man Booker-shortlisted author of All That Man Is Twelve people on the move around planet Earth, twelve individual lives, each in turmoil, and each in some way touching the next. In this nuanced and deeply moving sequence, David Szalay's diverse protagonists circumnavigate the world in twelve plane journeys, from London to Madrid, from Dakar to Sao Paulo, to Toronto, to Delhi, to Doha, en route to see lovers and parents, children and siblings, or nobody at all. Along the way, Szalay deftly depicts the ripple effect that, knowingly or otherwise, a person's actions have on those around them, and invites us to consider our own place in the vast and delicately balanced network of human relationships that is the world we live in today.

As Szalay consistently uproots his reader, proliferating characters and locations, [Turbulence] could be seen as an experiment in the limits of sympathy... a practical test for the way we feel (or fail to feel) for others. Such calculated neutrality is the perfect foil to some heart-stoppingly beautiful prose... Things in this elegant, frightening, politically charged book, fall apart. They also lift off. -- Sophie Ratcliffe * Daily Telegraph * Reading David Szalay is like receiving a series of electric shocks: his preference for short, sharp sketches, rather than a single, linear plot, means that his books deny the reader the comforts of conventional, more languid storytelling... Szalay's stories may be over in just a matter of minutes, but they are violently, appallingly immersive. -- Claire Allfree * Daily Mail * Ingenious... [David Szalay] knows about people... Stark and spare, Turbulence is an impressive novel. -- Brian Martin * Spectator * A portrait of our species at a time of crisis... Szalay is our greatest chronicler of these rootless, tradeworn places, and the desperate, itinerant lives of those who inhabit them. -- Alex Preston * Observer * More tales of mortality from a master of the genre... [Turbulence] is a chilling achievement. -- David Sexton * Evening Standard *
