When Adam moves into an abandoned house on the dusty edge of town, he is hoping to recover from the loss of his job and his home in the city. But when he meets Canning - a shadowy figure from his childhooh - and Canning's enigmatic and beautiful wife, a sinister new chapter in his life begins. Canning has inherited a vast fortune and built for himself a giant folly in the veld, a magical place of fantasy and dreams that seduces Adam and transforms him absolutely, violently - and perhaps forever. Damon Galgut's magnificent new novel evokes a hot and cruel and claustrophobic world, in which sex and death are never far from the surface. It is his most powerful and unforgettable novel yet.

Recensioner i media

"'Damon Galgut's book is the best I have read to come out of the new South Africa.' Allan Massie, Scotsman * 'A gripping tale of secrecy and obsession set in the African savannah.' Sunday Telegraph 'This is a novel about a country's transition and its moral effects, and it is absolutely brilliant.' The Times 'In one sense, The Impostor is a conventional crime caper, the story of an innocent man who gets sucked into a world that he doesn't understand. In another, it is a critique of contemporary South Africa, a country that, as Galgut depicts it, is beset with cruelty and a spirit of brutish materialism. But there is a third level on which the novel works, that of the fable or parable... Galgut's plots seem propelled by a logic of their own.' William Skidelsky, Observer 'Outstanding... [Galgut is] a major writer worthy to be referred to as a kindred spirit of the great Coetzee... The Impostor, with its bleak balancing of boyhood hopes and adult regret, is a great novel.' Eileen Battersby, Irish Times 'Spellbinding' Thomas Jones, Sunday Telegraph"
