The Promise

by Damon Galgut

ISBN: 9781529113877

Winner of the Man Booker Prize for 2021.

Masterful new fiction from twice Booker-shortlisted author Damon Galgut

A taut and menacing novel that charts the crash and burn of an Afrikaans family, the Swarts. Punctuated by funerals that bring the ever-diminishing family together, each of the four parts opens with a death and a new decade.

The characterisations are razor sharp, the dialogue dramatic, the action gripping.

As we traverse the decades, Damon interweaves the story of a disappointed nation from apartheid to Jacob Zuma.
