What does the narrator in "The Secret Sharer means when he says " I was something of a stranger to myself.

I think what he means is that he is so involve with himself that he did not have time for others . Am I ON THE RIGHT PATH. THANKS MUCH!!!

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. He does not know himself. That means that he has done something "out of character" for himself.
