…For the Endless Voyage

In Anthony Burgess’ short story The Endless Voyager, a businessman throws away his passport and wallet mid-transit and, unable to enter any country, spends the rest of his life shuttling from airport to airport. He eventually goes mad. Today, of course, such a traveller might stave off purgatorial insanity by dabbling on his iPhone or netbook.

In an occasional series, The Dabbler invites guests to select the six cultural links that might sustain them in an interminable succession of departure lounges.
