The Book of Strange New Things by Michel Faber

Utterly compelling from start to finish, The Book of Strange New Things is an artfully crafted, unforgettable and incredibly original novel by ambitious author Michel Faber.

A former alcoholic turned born-again Christian missionary, Peter Leigh, embarks on the greatest evangelist challenge of his life, but for the first time without his dedicated wife Beatrice by his side. In an unknown place with strange new customs, he must acclimatise to his current surroundings while not forgetting about those left at home.

A gripping page-turner from start to finish.
