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.

Krakauer meets Vollmann and Leigh-Fermor in these mesmerizing travel essays, all rendered in an exquisite style all Kociejowski’s own.
