Riassunto: SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2010

'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.

Recensione: Superb... With this new book Galgut has struck out in a new direction and taken his writing to a whole other level. It is a quite astonishing work. --William Skidelsky, Observer

Acute, beautiful, unsettling. I have rarely felt so moved whilst reading. --Sarah Hall, The Times

'One of the most beautiful and unsettling books I've ever read. I can't remember a more troubling and intense study of rootlessness and loneliness; Galgut is a writer of great, almost frightening, depth. --Tash Aw
