Alice Blumen, a Pulitzer-hungry American journalist working in London, makes an intriguing discovery. The British government is covering up three incidents affecting travellers crossing the English Channel that in different ways involve the distortion of time. She seeks out and joins the protagonists after they abandon everything in their lives in order to undertake a strange pilgrimage across the countryside of southeast England.



Cross-Channel passengers, some of them mysteriously from the past, arrive on the southeast coast of England. They have become infatuated with low-flying aircraft. With the authorities on their tail, they team up to make a pilgrimage to a local airport.



“Readers with a bent for abstract expressionism may well see this random gathering of characters – and the aimless inevitability of the book’s pilgrimage – and find something of their own lives within.” – Kirkus Reviews.


“A defiantly obscure tale, verging on the surreal . . .” – Kirkus Reviews.
