Zoroaster's Children and Other TravelsBook - 2015
A collection of essays offers a glimpse into the author's travels to such varied locales as Prague, Toronto, Marseilles, and Aleppo.
Longlisted for the 2016 RBC Taylor Prize
Zoroaster's Children brings together the best of Marius Kociejowski's travel writing. A companion volume to last year's critically acclaimed The Pebble Chance, these essays, conceived somewhere between "a waning moon and the nerves behind a flayed man's face," evince the deep absorption in a people and place which are the hallmark of great travel writers.
Marius Kociejowski is the award-winning author of four collections of poetry, two celebrated travel memoirs, and a collection of his best essays, The Pebble Chance. He lives and works as a bookseller in London, England.
