A moving book about people, all unique in their own way, who are explorers of their own lives. Armed with the power of imagination, they give the drab existence a silver lining. Includes a foreword by award-winning author Elvis Peeters. ‘Sometimes I wish that I was born in a time where there were still countries to discover, territories to conquer. I look at a map of the world and wonder if there aren’t any lost islands out there, and everyone just sailed past it for all this time. Recently, I tore all pages from an old atlas and I cut all the oceans and countries in pieces. I mixed the shreds and put them back together again, like a new world. All of a sudden, there seemed to be an awful lot of unclaimed territory.’

‘A wonderful voyage of discovery to places where you seem to have gone before. Just as touching as it is comforting. A book to devour bit by bit.’ – Lize Spit Ruth Mellaerts took part in a writing course at the Royal Institute for Theatre, Cinema and Sound in Brussels, where she obtained the highest grade ever for her writings.
