About this product
- DescriptionA traveller falls ill in a poor country and plummets into a feverish self-examination. But something's been hidden from me, too. Something - a part of myself - has been hidden from me, and I think it's the part that's there on the surface, what anyone in the world could see about me if they saw out the window of a passing train.
