THE BAGGAGE CAROUSEL
Dan Roberts has a troubled past, anger management issues and a backpack named after an abducted heiress. A chance encounter with Amber, a free-spirited Australian girl, seems to give his solitary, nomadic life a new sense of direction. But when she doesn’t respond to his emails, the only direction he’s heading is down…
The Baggage Carousel is a visceral yet humane travelogue of a novel about life's great let-downs; family, work and love. Dan Roberts is destined to go down as one of fiction's great solitary men, equal parts Iain Banks' Frank, Camus' Meursault and Seuss' The Grinch.
'A debut novel that feels written by an author already on top of his game. The Baggage Carousel is by turns funny, disturbing and sad. Rootless, pissed-off and disappointed young men everywhere have a new icon in Dan Roberts."
Nathan O'Hagan, author of 'The World Is (Not) A Cold Dead Place'
