Man Booker Prize Part Five
In A Strange Room by Damon Galgut

In a Strange RoomA novel of longing and thwarted desire, rage and compassion, In a Strange Room is a hauntingly beautiful evocation of one man’s search for love and for a place to call home.

A young man makes three journeys that take him through Greece, India and Africa. He travels lightly, simply.
