Read in February, 2012

This is the second book I’ve read by Damon Galgut and I enjoyed it just as much as the first. The story of the doctors take place in a desolate rural hospital in the middle the former homeland in South Africa. You can feel the bleakness of this locale, the isolation and the loneliness. Galgut allows the reader to feel these things. His words flow effortlessly…and it is words like this, that make me admire this author…

“She bent over the papers again and the conversation slipped out of sight, into a pocket somewhere, like a hard little knife. But it had cut us both.”

Poetry in motion.
