Journey Round My Room is a witty and philosophical story of a man under house arrest, embarking on a voyage around his bedroom. It is a meditation on one's internal and external surroundings, and it encourages the reader 'to notice what we have already seen'. The light coming into the room through an object, ordinary but observed, becamce an idea for the cover.
