Incredibly moving; an instant classic
on 1 April 2003
Here in Canada Justin Cartwright is just becoming known. This isa wonderful book, and confirms his status as one of the best writers in the world. It is the story of one man and his consideration of his life, his loves, his failures as he contemplates his mother's death in South Africa. This is post-apartheid fiction of the highest level. It;s also funny, humane and a great read.
