Synopsis:

In this wildly comedic romp around Europe, a fakir—and professional con artist—from rural India arrives in Paris with one goal: to visit IKEA. But his plan goes horribly awry when he climbs inside a wardrobe at the iconic Swedish retailer—the first in a series of missteps that will send him on a whirlwind tour across the continent. As his journey progresses, the fakir finds unlikely friends in even unlikelier places. To his surprise, the stirrings of compassion well up in his heart, even as his adventures lead to meditations on the perils of immigration and the universal desire for a better life. Propelled by laughter, love, and, ultimately, redemption, The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir Who Got Trapped in an Ikea Wardrobe is a work of manic energy and biting social commentary, and a charmingly exuberant debut from an exciting new literary voice.

About the Author: Romain Puértolas was born in Montpellier and has lived in France, Spain, and the U.K., where he has been a DJ, singer-songwriter, language teacher, translator-interpreter, and steward. He most recently worked as a police inspector with the French border service, specializing in document fraud. The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir Who Got Trapped in an Ikea Wardrobe was a number-one best seller in France and has been published in thirty-five countries.
