Publisher's Synopsis

The first collection of extraordinary stories from one of the greatest writers of our time.

With astonishing clarity, Booker Prize winner Galgut explores both the intimacies and violence of family life against the complex landscape of 1980s South Africa.

From a mother who experiences a devastating unmooring after her child falls gravely ill, to a son retracing his late father's brief yet passionate affair, the stories ripple out from one another, tenderly exposing those bonds we cannot escape.

PRAISE FOR DAMON GALGUT:

'Galgut seems to deliver effortlessly...there's nothing he can't do' Times


'Damon Galgut is very nearly without peer...an essential writer' Garth Greenwell


'Terrifically agile and consistently interesting...certainly up there with Nadine Gordimer and JM Coetzee' Guardian
