Product Description

Review

"A powerful study of lust, degradation and fantasy" (Observer)

"It says something about the loneliness, about the craving for love, about the relation between master and slave and between white and black, and about man's earthly anguish and longing for salvation - in a way you do not easily escape from once it has gripped you" (Andre Brink)

"The writing and mood are a remarkable piece of sustained intensity... One false word could have ruined this short tour de force completely. It never does" (Daily Telegraph)

"An intellectual lyric which sings the absence of history, the electric lull before history breaks... As a piece of cultural psychoanalysis and diagnosis, it's glitteringly precise" (Tom Paulin)

Book Description

An intense, unsettling, remarkable novel of a mind in decline from a writer unparralleled in fiction.
