**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.
The Promise charts the crash and burn of a white South African family, living 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 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.
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.
