Product description

Review

Absolution is a bold calling card from a major new writer * Independent on Sunday, 'Books of the Year' * Patrick Flanery is an exceptionally gifted novelist, and he is just getting started -- Philip Gourevitch * New Yorker * Flanery's portrayal of South Africa is explosively powerful... An exceptionally intelligent, multi-layered novel encompassing politics, history, a gripping storyline and complex characters. It has absorbing depictions of grief, guilt, parenthood and sibling rivalry, and is beautifully written... Absolution is an exceptional book. * Independent * A taut literary thriller set in South Africa... A very clever, beautifully written book where the reader is constantly adjusting to nothing being as it seems. * Daily Mail * Compelling... At times, Flanery's prose evokes Graham Greene... A literary thriller whose writing is consistently first class. * Observer * Gripping... The prose surges with enjoyable debate about the slipperiness of truth, the nature of forgiveness... Impressive * Sunday Telegraph *

Book Description

'A wonderfully constructed and gripping novel about betrayal and shadows in South Africa' AS Byatt, Guardian, 'Books of the Year'

Following the critical acclaim for his astonishing debut novel, Flanery has confirmed himself as one of the brightest rising literary stars
