About the Author

Will Buckingham is a writer, academic and traveller with an MA in Anthropology and a PhD in Philosophy. He has previously published books in several genres, including philosophy and fiction for children and adults. Born in the UK, he has worked and travelled all over the world. He co-directs Wind&Bones, a social enterprise that explores how writing can help us connect and reconnect, and is currently based in Sofia, Bulgaria.


Following a personal tragedy, Will Buckingham propels himself out, alone, into the world, to explore what it means to be a stranger - the joys and pitfalls, the perennial truths. A glorious book, fabulously learned and funny, and filled with all manner of stirring stories
*Philip Marsden, author of The Summer Isles*

A treasure trove of all the possibilities strangers can be to each other. Read, learn and savour
*Madeleine Bunting, author of Labours of Love: The Crisis of Care*

Buckingham provides a map for others to follow, showing that when we show kindness to strangers, we may be entertaining angels unawares
*John Paul Flintoff, author of How to Change the World (School of Life)*

Humane and heart-warming

A moving memoir of finding solace

Very excellent
*BBC Radio 4 Saturday Live*
