**WINNER OF THE BOOKER PRIZE 2021**

'A tour de force... A spectacular demonstration of how the novel can make us see and think afresh' Booker Judges, 2021

Discover the powerful prizewinning story of a family in crisis.


On a farm outside Pretoria, the Swarts are gathering for Ma's funeral. The younger generation, Anton and Amor, detest everything the family stand for - not least their treatment of the Black woman who has worked for them her whole life. Salome was to be given her own house, her own land...yet somehow, that vow is carefully ignored.

As each decade passes, and the family assemble again, one question hovers over them. Can you ever escape the repercussions of a broken promise?

** A NEW STATESMAN BOOK OF THE YEAR 2021 AND ONE OF THE DAILY TELEGRAPH'S 75 BEST BOOKS OF 2021 **

'Astonishing' Colm Tóibín

'A masterpiece - one of the best books I have read in the past decade... A moving, brilliantly told family epic' Elizabeth Day

'This is so obviously one of the best novels of the year' The Times

'Utterly compelling' Patrick Gale

'Gorgeous and pleasurable' Tessa Hadley
