From the Michael Charpentier Trilogy, 12,5 x 20 cm.
Michael is a young Dutch student who accompanies his older friend, a professor, on travels abroad. He experiences exotic locations in North Africa, the Middle East, Southeast Asia and Japan, eventually ending up in Australia. His travels bring unexpected and sometimes unsettling encounters. Meanwhile, he gains a new understanding of his own destiny. This is a contemporary coming-of-age novel in which overseas adventures turn into a journey to maturity and adulthood. It is the first volume of a trilogy. The three books offer a penetrating insight into student life in the Dutch university town of Leiden in the 1990s. The plot circles around the never-ending search for friendship, love and loyalty.
