Review |
Damon Galgut’s Booker Prize-winning The Promise, about the downfall of a white South African family, is a novel of mesmerising skill

  • Galgut’s ninth novel, and the third to make the Booker Prize shortlist, charts the downfall of a white South African family, starting in the apartheid era
  • The narrative passes from character to character, creating a beguilingly chaotic relay of voices that tell a story of injustice stretching over 30 years
