FROM THE BOOKER PRIZE-WINNING AUTHOR OF THE PROMISE

Winner of the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize and shortlisted for the Man Booker, The Good Doctor is a powerful tale of a friendship overshadowed by betrayal, set against the tawdry hopes and disappointments of a post-apartheid South Africa

Laurence Waters arrives at his rural hospital posting full of optimism. Frank, the disgruntled deputy, is forced to share his room with the new arrival but is determined to stay out of Laurence’s ambitious schemes. When the dilapidated hospital is looted, the two men find themselves uneasy allies in a world where the past is demanding restitution from the present.

The Good Doctor will be seen as one of the great literary triumphs of South Africa‘s transition… by a novelist of great and growing power.’ – Rian Malan, author of My Traitor’s Heart
