Simon Williams is plagued by a recurring nightmare where he goes on a long hike. But no matter how far he walks, he can never get away from his past.
As a young man he was scarred for life. If you passed him on the street, he might not stand out. There is nothing exceptionally notable about his appearance. However, he carries a secret torment that will one day change everything, not just for him.
As he turns 50, Simon looks back on the times of escape in his life that have taken him to Japan, India, Thailand, Greece, South Africa, and South America. This man has traveled to all the places most people want to go, but suffered from the one emotion that people do not.
An inspired memoir about an unusual life from a unique story teller. That is both hilariously funny and yet deeply thought provoking of what suppressing pain and anger can do to an ordinary man.
Eventually, our past catches up to all of us.
