Inhaltsangabe: We follow Larry Greenberg, a flawed but engaging character, on his journey in search of a soulmate and a sense of purpose. The witty descriptions and dialogue are very appealing, yet there is also an enticing cynical touch, as well as a hint of tragedy. Set in 2003, Larry Greenberg escapes from his corporate law job in Boston to teach in a seedy American college near London's Waterloo Station. His classes are composed of feckless young Americans on their year abroad and students from developing countries aiming to gain entrance into the United States. Larry lives alone in Wimbledon, and his British lovers want him out before the morning. Then he meets Carla who lets him stay the night, but who has to face her own anorexic daemons and who is into bondage. His search for companionship takes him to the Un-Americans, a tiny group of disaffected expatriate Americans who have joined together to demonstrate against their government's invasion of Iraq and to eat potluck Thanksgiving dinner. Though repelled by these eccentrics, he stays for Devorah, a dancer whose radical politics he tries to ignore. Meanwhile one of his American students disappears, while another student, an Egyptian desperate for a visa to the US, plans a marriage of convenience. Larry is reunited with Carla at an exhibition of her drawings. He discovers he is featured and doesn't know what's more revealing: being in the nude or sprouting a wing. Larry, the unassuming hero, continues to have moments of unease even when being cosseted within the warm traditional English lifestyle of Carla's mother. His own mother believes he has come to London to find himself, but has he lost his bearings? He has always been rootless, unwilling to commit himself to a job or woman or cause. If he grows up, must he shed his wings? Larry is not one of those who cannot return home, but is he condemned to forever consider himself to be an outsider?

Inhaltsangabe: Fiction. THE STRAY AMERICAN beautifully captures the sense of rootlessness and search for identity.

His search for companionship takes him to the Un-Americans, a tiny group of disaffected expatriate Americans. Though repelled by these eccentrics, he stays for Devorah, a dancer whose radical politics he tries to ignore. He has always been rootless, unwilling to commit himself to a job or woman or cause. If he grows up, must he shed his wings? Is he condemned to forever consider himself to be an outsider? Follow Larry, a flawed but engaging character, on his journey in search of a soul mate and a sense of purpose.
