The Lost Soul is beautifully illustrated by Joanna Concejo and the English translation is by Antonia Lloyd-Jones.
This is a short story about one man’s decision to slow his life down so his soul can catch up.
I loved this book. The story is so clever, and its message is timely. I would also love to have any one the illustrations on my walls.
I am so grateful that Ms. Tokarczuk’s works are being translated into English. The Lost Soul is a book that I borrowed from my local library, and I have now put a hold on her novel, Flights.
Here is one of my favourite quotes from The Lost Soul:
“How on earth is it possible? Have I lost my own soul too?” he asked.
The wise doctor answered.
“It happens because souls move at a much slower speed than bodies.”
Are you moving too quickly for your soul to keep up?
