The Promise

Reviewed By: 

Although on the surface, The Promise is about a deathbed request from a wife to her husband, it is just one of the many broken and unfulfilled promises which permeate this brilliant, searing, Booker prize winning novel. Damon Galgut's gift for language, for observation and for storytelling had me wishing I had nothing but time to read this book.
