Lovers separated. A letter written. A lonely voice echoes weakly from within the hollow structures of the city. It calls for a glance over a shoulder, for a memory.

Journey through questions of identity across the great cities of Europe: Berlin, Vienna, Paris, Stockholm, Budapest, Lisbon, Istanbul and many more. In this meticulously researched collection of moods and symmetries, Thomson layers up an alternative narrative for the European city of today whilst crafting a series of intimate reflections on each. Written over years of experience, Travels Through Absence is a travel book like no other.
