I don t know if I can convey how much I was looking forward to this novel I came across Galgut last summer for the first time I read uarry first and then The Good Doctor Both are excellent uarry is a prose poem of a novel a stark and haunting one The Good Doctor is fleshed out but still conveys a harsh and beautiful changing landscape with uestions of morality authenticity at its center I would call both of these novels unconventional innovative in their structure and style So read between the lines I fell in love with Galgut He even toppled Coetzee from his eternal position as my top favorite So African novelist to become one of my top favorite contemporary novelists period The Impostor reads like a mainstream novel a watered down version of Galgut s concerns The prose seems pedestrian than inspired and the structure of the novel offers nothing new But it s perhaps the characters which are most problematic at its center is Adam solipsistic passive trying to be a poeta very boring unsympathetic person Hard to have such a bland person at the center of your novelThe introduction of the characters of Canning and Baby help a great deal being charismatic complex in their layers of personality past lives their actions versus their intentions They are attractive and repellent bothBut Adam never ceases to be tiresome and somewhat predictable in his bumbling ways so the novels doesn t intensify in the way that the other work of Galgut does Instead it reads like watered down Galgut Is this what happens The writer writes from his core writes out his burning self and then can only access the surface from thereon outDepressing thought

At the moment i m nearly ready with Philip Roth s The Human Stain there should be a review up by Sunday but I thought i d take a tiny break and read The Imposter and I finished it in two hours flatMy first experience of Galgut was through The Good Doctor which I felt was uite sinister but a wholly satisfying read The good news is that The Impostor is even better it s Galgut at his peakAdam Napier is unemployed and homeless so he escapes from Johannesburg and visits his brother Gavin in the hope that he ll help him Gavin offers Adam an old abandoned house in the middle of nowhere Adam is pleased and thinks that he will start a new stress free life This soon comes to an end through two people who step in Adam s pathThe first one is his eerie neighbour Blom who has a dark past and secondly his old school friend Kenenth Caning who thrusts Adam into a mess of corruption and bribes The rest of the novel details Adam s plight and his attempts to escape out of this new lifeReally this is a book about post Apartheid South Africa Like Coetzee Galgut maintains that it is a place of corruption and bribery and a land full of wanton destruction going under the name of progress All the characters are product of this new South Africa and Galgut indirectly hints that the country is going down the drainThe Impostor is a page turner and Galgut has not only mastered his talent for making something creepy and full of suspense but he has perfected it I m also pleased that this book tallies with Heart of Redness and also states that South Africa and the Xhosa tribe are in danger due to lack of sustainable development

Damon Galgut is a writer I was introduced to last year and had one of those how could I not have known about this guy before reactions Both In A Strange Room and Circle of Beings showed a mastery of language the power of understatement and an incredible insight into people s complexitiesSo I was thrilled to see him on the shelves in my new local library Took this home with a mountain of other books and gave it to my mum to read as I was still in something else I said He s a master Remarkable And didn t really ask mum her thoughts as she was reading When she finished she talked of the challenges and complexities of South Africa than of the book But I only notice that in hindsightSo starting out with terribly high expectations disappointment was probably inevitable What really surprised me was how over written the prose is and that s something that is off putting in any novel but when it s written by someone who has demonstrated such skill in giving the reader just enoughit felt like a completely different writerAnd that s ok I support bands taking different courses in their genrestyleapproach and so to authors must branch out if it s how they keep inspiredI will definitely read of Damon Galgut s work and perhaps this experience has been good for resetting my expectations Although I m pretty sure he s going to blow me away again
