New publication date for In a Strange Room

The U.S. publication date of Damon Galgut's In a Strange Room has been set for October 15. The novel is one of six titles shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize, Britain's most prestigious literary award. The winner of the prize will be announced October 12.

In a Strange Room, which follows a young loner traveling through Greece, Africa and India, has been extraordinarily well-received by critics in the UK and beyond. The Times raved: "This is a wise and brilliant book." The Guardian called it "a beautiful book, strikingly conceived and hauntingly written, a writer's novel par excellence without a clumsy word in it." And The Globe and Mail wrote: "[Galgut's] powerful writing is honest and insightful, polished as it is to a marble-like perfection."

Galgut, who lives in Cape Town, South Africa, was previously shortlisted for the prize in 2003 for his novel The Good Doctor
