Damon Galgut’s haunting evocation of one man’s search for love and a place to call home - a novel of longing and thwarted desire, rage and compassion.
There is a moment when any real journey begins. 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 who 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 journeys will change his life.
