BOOKER PRIZE 2021 WINNER

The Booker Prize judges praised The Promise as "a spectacular demonstration of how the novel can make us see and think afresh", comparing it to the work of William Faulkner and Virginia Woolf. "It is a strong, unambiguous commentary on the history of South Africa and of humanity itself that can best be summed up in the question: does true justice exist in this world? We felt this book really is a tour de force. It combines an extraordinary story with rich themes – the history of the last 40 years in South Africa – in an incredibly well-wrought package."

'Another satisfying book from this brilliant author'

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- I adore Barry's writing, he has such a way with words that often I stop and re-read sentences for the sheer beauty and perfection of them! This new novel follows the story of Winona, the Lakota girl who was adopted by Thomas McNulty and John Cole, protagonists of Barry's last book Days Without End. She is much-loved and treated with great respect by her ragtag adoptive family, and as an educated girl works for the local lawyer.

But a pretty girl in a rough town isn't always treated so kindly (and certainly not an Indian one) and though a young man persuades her of his affections, there is not always enough protection against the prejudices of society. A traumatic incident leaves her struggling to understand what happened, but in that conflict she learns who she truly is… Powerful, involving and lyrical prose, another satisfying book from this brilliant author.
