Reading & Signing

In his fictional biography of the novelist E. M. Forster, Damon Galgut reveals the renowned writer's creative process and his struggles with his sexual desires. From India to Egypt to England, Galgut
traces the life of Forster and the relationships  -- from the poet C.P. Cavafy to an Egyptian tram conductor -- that informed his life and work.

~ ~ The concern is Forster's inner life, and Galgut inhabits him with such
sympathetic completeness, and in prose of such modest excellence, that
he starts to breathe on the page.  ~ The Financial Times

~ ~ A remarkable story beautifully told... Galgut's formidable talent as a
novelist transforms the facts of Forster's life into art.  ~ The Washington Post

~ ~ The genius of this novel, which would well be one of the finest literary
works published this year, lies in Galgut's exploration of the agony of
unrequited love.  ~ The Irish Times

~ ~ The portrait is beautifully nuanced, a mixture of bold, colourful strokes
and delicate little flicks of the brush. ~ The Sunday Times

Damon Galgut is the author of the Commonwealth Writers Prize winning novel, The Good Doctorand the Man Booker Prize shortlisted novel, In a Strange Room.  He lives in Cape Town, South Africa.
