    A gifted author at an early age

    This selection of stories written when Galgut was in his early 20s shows the promise of a writer with an acute eye and sensitivity. His realm is, for the most part, the family and young men finding themselves in the context of that relationship and the wider world. The title novella, brilliantly and devastatingly told through the eyes of the mother of a young boy dying of cancer, a situation Galgut was, himself once in.
