Adam Langer…taut, mesmerizing…the elegance of Mr. Galgut's writing and the relentless and uncompromising pursuit of his themes are remarkable…Perhaps most memorably and effectively, throughout his novel Mr. Galgut frequently shifts back and forth from third person to first, and even upon occasion to second. How quickly, he seems to tell the reader, significant moments become distant memories, how quickly our actions become those of someone we barely remember or recognize. In the books we read and in the lives we lead, how easily I can become he, and he can become you.
