Will Buckingham's Hello, Stranger: How We Find Connection in a Disconnected World
(Granta 2021) is a memoir of grief, a piece of travel writing, a frieze of brilliant anecdotes, and anthropological essay, a philosophical study, an autobiography of encounters, yet, at the same time, an autobiography of readings. This passionate and brave 'collage', accompanied by 425 endnotes, some of which intriguing stories themselves, is what makes Will Buckhingham’s latest book both a thought provoking read and a page-turner.
From the twilight aspects of host-guest relationship
, described in Homer’s Odyssey, to the nowadays refugee crises around the world, the author offers a multidisciplinary approach to challenge our national, ethnic, ethical, cultural, linguistic, and even human 'borders'.
