Product description


A sweet and touching love story --The Guardian


Milan, a violinist in a London orchestra, becomes aware of strange musical clicking sounds seeming to come from inside himself. A series of medical tests gradually reveal that before his birth he somehow managed to subsume his twin sister - a not entirely uncommon occurrence termed medically 'foetus in fetu' and which, as well as being a staple feature in a host of television drama series, describes the "troublesome offspring" of Cardinal Guzman in Louis de Bernieres' 1992 novel of the same name. Milan names his sister Roma and embarks on the task of trying to introduce her to the world outside. He enlists the help of young special needs teacher Murri and together the three of them conduct a series of experiments to enable Roma to express herself."Passenger" is a novel about language, identity, perception as creation and the mystery of a fulfilled life. It explores the relationship between the I and the we: the roles we play in the lives of others. Are we our brother's keepers, as Milan is his sister's?

"Passenger" arrests the reader, stripping us of the habits of our bored perception, giving us new eyes, new language, newly tapped rhythms with which to experience these issues as if for the first time. This act of dehabitualised perception - Milan's act, Roma's act, Cowie's act - is quietly, beautifully, and quite genuinely, revolutionary. "Passenger" promises to be one of the most talked-about novels of 2008.
