Chano Salgado goes on the run just as the brother he's never met comes looking for him, and the son he thought he'd lost for ever reappears...
An extraordinary epic novel about loss and hope set in Britain, Mexico and the United States, The Fountain at the Centre of the World takes us, via container crate and conference suite, from refugee detention centre and trawler boat, to the streets of Seattle, where, amid tear gas and rubber bullets, the destinies of Chano, his brother and his son will be changed for ever.
