You are invited to an evening with 2021 Booker Prize winner Damon Galgut at The Book Lounge!
Galgut, who won the prestigious award for his novel The Promise, will be in conversation with Mervyn Sloman.
The Promise is the story of a family, but also of a country, over forty years. In four parts, each one centred on a family funeral in a different decade, the family fights over a piece of land outside Pretoria. In the background, a different president is in power, and a different spirit hangs over the country. At the core of this mesmerising and at times darkly humorous novel is a deathbed promise by a mother that was never kept—a promise overheard by her young daughter Amor.
