About the book: 
He is intensely happy, which is possible for him when he is walking and alone.
 
A young man makes three journeys that take him through Greece, India and Africa. He travels lightly, simply. To those who travel with him and those whom he meets on the way – including a handsome, enigmatic stranger, a group of careless backpackers and a woman on the edge – he is the Follower, the Lover and the Guardian. Yet, despite the man’s best intentions, each journey ends in disaster. Together, these three journeys will change his whole life. A novel of longing and thwarted desire, rage and compassion,  In a Strange Room  is the hauntingly beautiful evocation of one man’s search for love, and a place to call home.
