              Galgut will be seen as one of the great literary triumphs of South Africa's transition... in every way the equal of J. M. Coetzee --Rian Malan, author of My Traitor's Heart A modern saga that could only have come from South Africa, written in gorgeous prose that could only come f...rom the pen of literary giant and Booker Prize-shortlisted author, Damon Galgut. The Promise is the story of the Swart family--a story of failed possibilities, much like the history of their country. Haunted by an unmet promise made to the family servant, the well-to-do Swarts lose touch after the death of their mother. Reunited by three funerals over three decades, the dwindling family reflects the charged atmosphere of post-apartheid South Africa in a family drama that unfurls against the unrelenting march of national history.

              ***LONGLISTED FOR THE 2021 BOOKER PRIZE*** A masterpiece of a family in crisis from twice Booker-shortlisted author Damon Galgut 'Astonishing' Colm Toibin 'A literary masterpiece' Sarah Hall The Promise charts the crash and burn of a white South African family, living on a farm o...utside Pretoria. The Swarts are gathering for Ma's funeral. The younger generation, Anton and Amor, detest everything the family stand for -- not least the failed promise to the Black woman who has worked for them her whole life. After years of service, Salome was promised her own house, her own land... yet somehow, as each decade passes, that promise remains unfulfilled. The narrator's eye shifts and blinks: moving fluidly between characters, flying into their dreams; deliciously lethal in its observation. And as the country moves from old deep divisions to its new so-called fairer society, the lost promise of more than just one family hovers behind the novel's title. In this story of a diminished family, sharp and tender emotional truths hit home. Confident, deft and quietly powerful, The Promise is literary fiction at its finest. 'Gorgeous and pleasurable' Tessa Hadley 'The most important book of the last ten years' Edmund White 'Simply: you must read it' Claire Messud
