Summertime odyssey through a poetic past. this odyssey is a book to pack for its gypsy spirit and its summer music.

ReadySteadyBook Review: Soul Tourists by Bernardine Evaristo -- Bernardine Evaristo’s third novel is a vibrant collage. Stylistically playful, it throws a lot of ideas around. Places and faces, voices from the past and from the present. Her previous works, Lara and The Emperor’s Babe were novels in verse and her latest only occasionally dips into straightforward prose. Soul Tourists was originally written as a straightforward prose novel of 90, words which didn’t work. The story was messy and the writing too prosaic. Once I began to experiment with the form of the novel, turning the prose into poetry and scripts and so forth, the language and story began to come alive.
