“The plot is just the vehicle for a story that reveals the dark heart of South Africa’s recent and turbulent history; apartheid, conscription, peace and reconciliation are all glossed. In The Promise, is a kind of fluid narrativity which means we, the reader, are literally swept along, while Galgut pays a very direct tribute to Joyce in the final cadenced pages.

He’s done it with mastery, guile and a generous amount of empathy. The Promise is a masterpiece.”
