Fourth Galaxy, 4 November 2052: in the black sparkle of deep space a figure in a blue overall tumbles over and over as it drifts towards the planet Badr-al-Budur. No space suit, helmet, oxygen. He can't be alive, can he? But he is. First Navigator Fremder Gorn is the only survivor when the Corporation tanker Clever Daughter disappears. Nobady kws how he did it, and everybody, including Fremder himself, wants to kw. Caroline Lovecraft, Head of the Physio/Psycho unit at Newton Centre, Hubble Straits finds that intimacy doesn't lead to answers and Fremder's own memories are resolutely obscure. Fremder's name means stranger, and his story, as one would expect from Russell Hoban, is full of strangeness and brilliant imagery.
Russell Hoban is the author of many extraordinary novels including TURTLE DIARY, RIDDLEY WALKER, ANGELICA'S GROTTO, and most recently AMARYLLIS NIGHT AND DAY. He has also written some classic books for children including THE MOUSE AND THE CHILD and the FRANCES books. He lives in London.
