FROM THE BOOKER PRIZE-WINNING AUTHOR OF THE PROMISE

SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE, 2003

A year ago Patrick Winter was in Namibia completing his military service. Now, during the first free elections, Patrick has returned to the country he defended; the place where he fell in love for the first and only time. With the country poised to change forever, Patrick is forced to revisit his past and scale the wall that he has built around his painful memories of love, war and loss.

‘An astonishingly sensitive writer.’ Irish Times

‘Engaging and enduring… devastating in the lucidity and austere assurance of its prose.’ TLS

‘A work whose psychological observation is as subtle as its political analysis.’ The Times

‘A beautifully written and thoughtful meditation on love, loss and longing.’ Attitude
