Description

FROM THE BOOKER PRIZE-WINNING AUTHOR OF THE PROMISE

Shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for Best Book

A gripping, claustrophobic novel of guilty secrets, obsession and self-reinvention on the African Savannah from the twice Man Booker-shortlisted author.

When Adam moves into an abandoned house on the dusty edge of town, he is hoping to recover from the loss of his job and his home in the city. But when he meets Canning – a shadowy figure from his childhood – and Canning’s enigmatic and beautiful wife, a sinister new chapter in his life begins. Canning has inherited a vast fortune and built for himself a giant folly in the veld, a magical place of fantasy and dreams that seduces Adam and transforms him absolutely, violently – and perhaps forever.

Damon Galgut’s magnificent novel evokes a hot and cruel and claustrophobic world, in which sex and death are never far from the surface.
