Munich Airport

by Greg Baxter
£8.99   paperback  Penguin Books Ltd (2015)

Munich Airport by Greg Baxter An American expat in London takes a phone call. The caller is a German policewoman, and the news she has to convey to him is almost incomprehensible: his sister, Miriam, has been found dead in her Berlin flat, of starvation.
 
Three weeks later, the man, his elderly father, and an American consular official find themselves in a fogbound Munich Airport, where Miriam's coffin is to be loaded onto a commercial jet. Greg Baxter's extraordinary novel tells the story of these three people over those three weeks of waiting for Miriam's body to be released.
 
Munich Airport is a novel about the meaning of home, and about the families we improvise when our real families fall apart. It is a gripping, daring and mesmeric read from one of the most gifted young novelists currently at work.
