Product description


"Extraordinarily readable. . . . A very beautiful book for one thing, strikingly conceived and hauntingly written, a writer's novel par excellence. . . ."
— The Guardian

"A powerful three-part meditation on the relationship between travel, love and an off-kilter self."
— Financial Times

"It is the honesty that consolidates this thoughtful, intelligent, cohesively human book. Galgut, ever the wanderer, always the seeker, is here at his most deliberate, as intent on finding meaning as on asking questions."
— Irish Times

"Galgut has the talent to grow into one of South Africa's great literary voices."
The Economist

"Galgut is a worthy heir to Gordimer and Coetzee."
The Observer

"Like Ian McEwan, [Galgut] is a master of menace."
Vancouver Sun

"A master of psychological tension."
Globe and Mail
