**A New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice** From the acclaimed, Man Booker Prize-shortlisted author of All That Man Is, a stunning, virtuosic novel about twelve people, mostly strangers, and the surprising ripple effect each one has on the life of the next as they cross paths while in transit around the world. A woman strikes up a conversation with the man sitting next to her on a plane after some turbulence. He returns home to tragic news that has also impacted another stranger, a shaken pilot on his way to another continent who seeks comfort from a journalist he meets that night. Her life shifts subtly as well, before she heads to the airport on an assignment that will shift more lives in turn. In this wondrous, profoundly moving novel, Szalay's diverse protagonists circumnavigate the planet in twelve flights, from London to Madrid, from Dakar to Sao Paulo, to Toronto, to Delhi, to Doha, en route to see lovers or estranged siblings, aging parents, baby grandchildren, or nobody at all. Along the way, they experience the full range of human emotions from loneliness to love and, knowingly or otherwise, change each other in one brief, electrifying interaction after the next. Written with magic and economy and beautifully exploring the delicate, crisscrossed nature of relationships today, Turbulence is a dazzling portrait of the interconnectedness of the modern world.… (mais)

While on a flight from London to Madrid, a strong bit of turbulence causes an elderly woman to say a few quick words to the man sitting next to her, whom she was at first wary of. This small conversation begins a chain of human connections that travel around the globe, briefly touching on the small stories that normally go unnoticed.

"Turbulence" provides a good starting point for each of the connections, but I felt like just as the story started to reel me in, the flight moved to another city and another story. I never found myself truly captured by the book because I don't feel that I was given enough time with each group to connect with the characters. It came across as incomplete, needing a few more details to make each of the flights that much more clear instead of leaving as many unanswered questions as I found after finishing the book. ( )

Twelve people mostly strangers.

The surprising ripple effect each one has on the life of the next as they cross paths while in transit around the world.

Along the way, they experience the full range of human emotions from loneliness to love and, knowingly or otherwise, change each other in one brief, electrifying interaction after the next.

Thank you Goodreads and Scribner Books for a chance to read this book!

Each chapter is about a different character. But each chapter flows into one another to show the connection we have as people and how a single event can affect not just the people closest to the time and place of the event but it can affect someone on the other side of the world. The ripple effect. So, its 12 chapters of short stories but in a way, you don’t really feel like you a reading short story. It was a beautiful book. Happy reading everyone!! ( )

I don’t normally read short stories but decided to give this book a try. Didn’t think I’d be able to get invested spending only a handful of pages with each character but actually really enjoyed it and did feel a lot more connected than I expected. And great to see how all of these overlapped lives come together. ( )

I really liked the format of these short stories -- a side character in the first story becomes the main character of the second story, and so on throughout the collection. I also like the way that we travel by plane with each of the characters (hence, "Turbulence") and get very brief but tantalizing glimpses into their lives. A quick but lovely read.

A clever slender book that follows a handful of flights around the world (based on their three-letter airport abbreviation, which I had fun guessing). Each chapter picks up on one traveler, their interaction with another, and then what happens after they land. Such are we reminded of how we are all connected and also how everyone has something in his or her life that we would never guess at based on our surface airplane interactions. The range of countries and distances was pretty cool and also pretty believable (and eye-opening in this Covid-19 moment) and the narration swung smoothly from character to character like a monkey on a jungle vine. My only wish was to know a little bit more about many of the featured folks, but we are only granted a short snippet. Embedded in the book is a quote by JFK that gets to the essence of it: "For, in the final analysis, our most basic common link is that we all inhabit the this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children's future. And we are all mortal." (p. 138) Amen to that! ( )

Over the course of 12 masterfully sketched stories, each one focusing on a different individual on the move, he circumnavigates this small planet and highlights humankind’s interconnectedness.... Whether in the clouds or on terra firma, Szalay’s travelers are shocked and shaken by various traumas. By rights, his pared-back prose and miniature portraits should be able to describe and convey only so much. But as in his previous novel “All That Man Is,” his light touches and fleeting glimpses belie great insight and depth.
 
“Turbulence” is a sleek machine with a cool tone. Each chapter picks up from the last, but presents a new protagonist, as if a moral baton were being passed. The chapters come full circle. In the end, the book resembles a snake that’s begun to consume its own tail.

David Szalay’s “Turbulence” began life in 2018 as a series on the BBC’s Radio 4. The resulting book, first published last year in the United Kingdom, shares the radio program’s episodic nature, relaying 12 stories about characters whose lives are linked via air travel and whose in-flight anxieties have nothing on the troubles awaiting them on the ground.... A person who is introduced in one chapter becomes the protagonist of the next, and the book starts and ends in London, touching down in Madrid, Dakar, Senegal, Seattle and elsewhere in between. While some characters within each story are strangers to one another, meeting on a plane, in a taxi or through a hookup app, many are related by blood or marriage. Few are happy. No one’s trip goes as planned.

The slender new novel from Szalay—whose most recent book, All That Man Is, was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize in 2016—is a (world) tour de force, an exploration in fiction of the concept of six degrees of separation.... The chapters are tiny cross sections of lives, lovingly examined under the writer's microscope. The result is a book that is high concept but—thanks to Szalay's gift for compression and the same empathetic imagination that was on display in All That Man Is—never gimmicky. Szalay has devised an ingenious way to accommodate enormous range in a miniature form. Subtle, smart—a triumph.
