Top ten books about psychological journeys

Novelist, literary journalist, and psychotherapeutic counsellor Sebastian Beaumont is the author of Thirteen and The Juggler.

A few years ago he named a top 10 list of books about psychological journeys for the Guardian, including:
2001: A Space Odyssey by Arthur C Clarke

This is a hypnotic voyage into the terrifying darkness of both external and internal space. The interface between man and technology and the question of what it means to be human will always be the stuff of nightmare, but Clarke also sees the possibility of transformation and redemption. A compelling masterpiece.
Read about the other books on the list.
