After seeing an intriguing newspaper ad for a bus travelling to India, Jude Sixpence is captivated by the idea of heading east and finding salvation. At eighteen, already weary of the prospect of a lifetime of monotonous work in the grey of England, he dreams of travelling the world. But it is the 1970s and the overland route is full of danger. Iran is threatening to erupt into revolution and there are rumours the Soviets are soon to invade Afghanistan.
With the world in chaos, will he even make it to the healing east and truly find himself? Will it be the adventure of a lifetime? Or will his life be changed forever by the many curious characters and peculiar events he encounters on the way?
Both exciting and contemplative, The Peculiar Shape of Moving is a gripping meditation on the human condition. Written with poetic insight, it invites all of us to reflect on what it means to travel and journey through life.

Steve France

Steve France was born in Birmingham. After school, for no other reason than the world seemed like a big and glorious place, he decided to travel. He spent years taking casual jobs and hitchhiking and busing his way around the world. On his return to England, he set up a management development company and wrote his first management book. He has since written several novels, the first of which, ‘Hiding with the Sugar Stealers' has been published. He is married, and together with his wife, still spends much of his time travelling and writing.
