Soul Tourists

by Bernardine Evaristo - £7.99  Penguin Books (2006)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780140297829 | ISBN 10: 0140297820

On Friday morning Stanley Williams is a single banker in his thirties, living a strait-laced London life.
By the end of the day he's met Jessie O'Donnell, who picks him up, shakes him up, and takes Stanley deep into her heart - which, like the rest of her, is heading for Europe in a rusty old Lada.
Caught in a road movie of the soul, the couple freewheel down the dusty roads and dustier history of old and new Europe, picking up Pushkin and Shakespeare's 'Dark Lady of the Sonnets' and a host of black ghosts along the way. And for Stanley, it's a journey that might have no end.

"Dazzling... Soul Tourists explores realms that are more than usually out of the ordinary. Thought-provoking, funky and funny."
