‘The pleasure we derive from journeys is perhaps dependent on the mindset with which we travel than on the destination we travel to’ – From the Foreword by Alain de Botton

Finding himself locked in his room for six weeks, a young officer journeys around his room in his imagination, using the various objects it contains as inspiration for a delightful parody of contemporary travel-writing and an exercise in Sternean picaresque, and humorously demonstrating what one can explore without having to set off to exotic locations.

Accompanied in this volume by its equally superb sequel, A Nocturnal Expedition around My Room, in which a similar voyage is made at night several years later, A Journey around My Room is a masterly and innovative piece of writing, which was immensely popular in its time and would later influence Victor Hugo and Marcel Proust, among others.
