Summary
"The Strange follows an unnamed, undocumented immigrant who tries to forge a new life in a Western country where he doesn speak the language. Jérôme Ruillier story is deftly told through myriad viewpoints, as each narrator recounts a situation in which they crossed paths with the newly-arrived foreigner. Many of the people he meets are suspicious of his unfamiliar background, or of the unusual language they do not understand. By employing this third-person narrative structure, Ruillier masterfully portrays the complex plight of immigrants and the vulnerability of being undocumented"--Provided by the publisher.
