A bold and exciting literary novel set in South Africa that contemplates the elusive line between truth and self-perception.

Ambitious and assured, Absolution propels the reader to the final page in a drive to discover the secrets and truths at its core.

Recensioni editoriali (4 recensioni)


Flanery depicts the insular, insecure society of his white South Africans without apology and without condemnation.

In this way “Absolution” is unavoidably reminiscent of J. M. Coetzee’s “Disgrace,” which is also set in post-apartheid South Africa and contains as its central action a vicious break-in to the home of the protagonist’s daughter. “Disgrace,” however, was an emotionally austere work of almost abrasive simplicity. Flanery’s novel is not.

Kirkus Reviews : ABSOLUTION (01 Aprile 2012)

Complex in theme, complex in narrative, this is a masterful literary exploration of the specter of conscience and the formidable cost of reconciliation.
