The Flying Man

The Flying Man

THE FLYING MAN is the story of the ultimate immigrant from the twice Orange Prize long-listed author Roopa Farooki.

Meet Maqil – also known as Mike, Mehmet, Mikhail and Miguel – a chancer and charlatan. A criminally clever man who tells a good tale, trading on his charm and good looks, reinventing himself with a new identity and nationality in each successive country he makes his home, abandoning wives and children and careers in the process. He’s a compulsive gambler – driven to lose at least as much as he gains, in games of chance, and in life. A damaged man in search of himself.
