The Shal­lows

Glamour (South Africa) - - Guide/Time Out -

by In­grid Win­ter­bach

(Hu­man & Rousseau; R282) Taut, lyri­cal and lay­ered, this new novel by one of SA’S greats ex­plores is­sues rang­ing from cre­ative ex­pres­sion to vi­o­lence. At its cen­tre is Nick Steyn, an artist bruised by a failed ro­mance and haunted by the dis­ap­pear­ance of a pho­tog­ra­pher friend. But there is much more, as the story deep­ens with power and sub­tlety, sweep­ing in a mur­der and an elu­sive nov­el­ist. A mes­meris­ing lit­er­ary read.
