Nomad is a novel about a couple of backpackers making their way around Europe, meeting and losing each other as they sort themselves out.
Damon is Australian, trying to escape the career that has been mapped out for him back home. Stacy is American, trying to get over the tragedies of her own life.
They live on trains and in youth hostels from Amsterdam north to Copenhagen and Hell, Norway; east to Berlin, Prague and St Petersburg; and south to Paris, Barcelona and Rome. They drink cheap vodka and smoke hash through Coke cans; they devour art, music and a lot of bread and cheese as they try to come to grips with the world and themselves.
