We’re delighted to have signed up another wonder novel by an exciting author: The Stray American by Wendy Brandmark.
The Stray American beautifully captures the sense of rootlessness and search for identity. Set in 2003, Larry Greenberg escapes from his corporate law job in Boston to teach in a seedy American college near London’s Waterloo Station. We follow Larry, a flawed but engaging character, on his journey in search of a soulmate and a sense of purpose. Larry is not one of those who cannot return home, but is he condemned to forever consider himself to be an outsider?
