Hello, Stranger : Stories of Connection in a Divided World, Paperback / softback Book

Hello, Stranger : Stories of Connection in a Divided World Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


What if meeting new people were a gift, not a burden?How might we transform our lives if we set aside our fear of outsiders?When Will Buckingham's partner died, the shock of his grief told him to withdraw.

Instead, he sought solace in throwing open the door to new people; travelling the world - from Birmingham to Myanmar - seeking out stories of loneliness, exile and friendship, from classical times to the modern day.

Drawing from his travels, as well as insights from philosophy, anthropology, history and literature, Hello, Stranger is a powerful antidote to loneliness and xenophobia, and a heart-warming story of the power of kindness and compassion.
