The Haunted Traveller

(1998)
A novel by

 
 
Barry Yourgrau writes bedtime stories for adults that take on the age-old themes of love, family, sex, and loneliness and shock them to fresh life, dazzling readers with their prodigies of imagination. In Haunted Traveller, his most personal and ambitious work to date, he takes the reader on a post-modern literary journey like no other. Here are forty-four fantastic episodes that together paint an imaginary memoir of one man's yearning, alienated passage through life. Think Bruce Chatwin meets Monty Python. Meets Paul Bowles meets Fellini meets Scheherazade meets The Twilight Zone. Think the moody romance of Travel itself. Haunted Traveller packs readers along on the moonstruck roaming of a lost soul searching for a childhood memento. Wander to tropical hotel rooms to hear deathbed whispers: book passage on a wild sea voyage with a heartbreaking, cross-dressing crew: climb to mountain graveyards where a ghost shops for a live wife; spy on stolen kisses in snowbound palaces. Voyage to lands that exist in the dreams, poetic whimsies, and troubled confessions of a man who's seen all too much.
