Description:

On a lonely stretch of road near a small South African coastal town, a murder is committed. There is no one to witness the act and no one who could predict the bizarre repercussions which must inevitably follow. In taking on the identity of his victim, the murderer cannot foresee the sequence of events which, once set in motion, are inescapable, not only for him, but for all the town's inhabitants, from the light-fingered Valentine, who unwittingly leads them to the body, to Captain Mong, who cannot rest until he gets his man. And beneath the apparent workings of justice, contradictary forces are at war. In 'The Quarry', Damon Galgut, brings the power of myth to his tender prose to create a devastating drama, alive with tension.Written years ago but never before published outside South Africa, 'The Quarry' is a stark, intense, and crystalline novel in which human nature is set against the desolate backdrop of rural South Africa.
