About the book

'Beautiful. Strikingly conceived and hauntingly written.' Jan Morris, Guardian

Damon Galgut's masterful novel of longing and thwarted desire following one man on three very different journeys.

A young man takes three journeys, through Greece, India and Africa. He travels with little purpose, letting the chance encounters of the road dictate his path. But although he knows that he is drifting, he is unable to settle. It is as if, without these encounters, the person he is cannot exist. And yet each journey ends in disaster.

A novel of longing and thwarted desire, rage and compassion, In a Strange Room is an extraordinary evocation of one man's search for love, and a place to call home.
