Far too set in her ways for someone her age, failed dancer turned graphic designer Oceane doesn't get out much. Luckily there's a lot you can do in your room these days... In this completely original, deliciously raunchy novel, Tibor Fischer returns to top form to give us a story of a woman searching the world in order to understand her past. Starting in the cramped confines of a South London apartment, Voyage to the End of the Room takes its funny (and foulmouthed) heroine to the nightclubs of Barcelona, the battle-fields of the Balkans, and a reckoning on the Micronesian island of Chuuk, shedding memories and finding answers along the way. Combining Fischer's trademark sardonic wit and offbeat imaginative flair, the result is a compelling page-turner that doubles as a darkly hilarious meditation on how and whether you can ever really know other people, the nature of evil, what is reality--and whether you can fake it.
