Description - The Book of Strange New Things by Michel Faber
'I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.'
From the author of Under the Skin and The Crimson Petal and the White, the first novel from Michel Faber in twelve years is a wildly original tale of adventure, faith and the ties that might hold two people together when they are worlds apart
Peter Leigh is a husband, a Christian, and now a missionary. As The Book of Strange New Things opens, he is set to embark on a journey that will be the biggest test of his faith yet.
From the moment he says goodbye to his wife, Bea, and boards his flight, he begins a quest that will challenge his religious beliefs, his love and his understanding of the limits of the human body.
This momentous novel is Faber at his expectation-defying best. It is a brilliantly compelling book about love in the face of death, and the search for meaning in an unfathomable universe.
