Operation Wandering Soul: From the Booker Prize-shortlisted author of BEWILDERMENT
BY THE AUTHOR OF THE BOOKER PRIZE-SHORTLISTED BEWILDERMENT AND THE OVERSTORY
In the paediatrics ward of a public hospital, a group of sick children is gathering. The surrogate parents of this band - a tired, overworked surgical resident and a therapist - are charged with prolonging their lives using storytelling and make-believe alone.
Operation Wandering Soul is a novel about imagination and memory. At once a social indictment and an intensely emotional account of intimate need, it asks how we might keep alive, a little longer, the vanishing narratives of childhood.
'Richard Powers is the most intellectually stimulating novelist at work in the English language today' Daily Telegraph
