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.

From the Back Cover:

Bringing together the best of Marius Kociejowski's travel writing Zoroaster's Children snags on the borderline between dream and meaning, offering unusual glimpses of some of the places, exotic or otherwise, the author has been. Attracted to society's outcasts—as it is these, he argues, which point towards an underground of conformity that will not contain them—Kociejowski offers ain these essays glimpses of locales as diverse and seemingly divergent as Prague, Tunisia, Moscow, Aleppo and Toronto, among others. By turns empathetic and virtuosic, and always on the lookout for the deeper meaning seeded inside language, the essays in Zoroaster's Children evince the deep absorption in people and places which is the hallmark of all great travel writers.

About the Author:

In addition to being an essayist and travel writer, Marius Kociejowski is the award-winning author of four collections of poetry, including The Street Philosopher and the Holy Fool, and is the editor of Syria Through Writers' Eyes. He lives and works as a bookseller in London, England.
