Summary (From the publisher):

"I am different. I am different. I am different. I wrote it on a piece of paper. In the evening I would take the paper out of my pocket and look at it..." Sebestyen's novel is the story of a young man whose physical appearance proclaims to the world that he stands apart from the norm. Everything is seen through the eyes of the albino protagonist. His physical vulnerability is matched by a psychological sensitivity which Sebestyen uses to present his protagonist's response to his environment and his predicament with a movingly lyrical intensity.

The albino could stand for any outsider. The novel does not examine the hostility or persecution that creates the outsider, but focuses on the debilitating effect on a person of being unable to belong to normal society.
