A breathtaking parable of death and deception from the twice Booker-shortlisted author.

Damon Galgut's 'lost' novel, written in 1995 but unpublished outside South Africa for ten years.

On a lonely stretch of road a nameless man commits a murder. The victim is a religious minister on his way to take up a post in a nearby town. The murderer decides to steal the dead man's identity in order to conceal the crime. But one of his first duties as the new minister is to bury a body that has just been discovered in suspicious circumstances. As the corpse is laid to rest the manhunt begins...

In The Quarry, Galgut's tender prose combines with the power of myth to create a devastating drama, alive with tension.

MEDIA REVIEWS
I liked this novel a lot. It has all the vigour and raw honesty of The Good Doctor. * Doris Lessing *
Damon Galgut is a writer of immense clarity and control. -- Daily Telegraph * Patrick Ness *
The Quarry proves that he has the talent to grow into one of South Africa's great literary voices, alongside its Nobel laureates, Nadine Gordimer and J. M. Coetzee. * Economist *
