Inhaltsangabe: When Laurence Waters arrives at his rural hospital posting, Frank is instantly suspicious. Laurence is everything Frank is not - young, optimistic and full of new schemes. The two become uneasy friends, while the rest of the staff in the deserted hospital view Laurence with a mixture of awe and mistrust. The town beyond the hospital is also coping with new arrivals, and the return of old faces. The brigadier - a self-fashioned dictator from apartheid days - is rumoured still to be alive. And down at Mama's place, a group of soldiers have moved in with their malign commandant, a man Frank has met before and is keen to avoid. Laurence wants to help - but in a world where the past is demanding restitution from the present, his ill-starred idealism cannot last. In gleaming prose Damon Galgut has created a literary thriller out of an unlikely friendship. The Good Doctor is a gripping novelistic high-wire act.
'A gripping read, laced throughout with powerful emotional truth and Damon Galgut's extraordinary vision.’ -- Julie Wheelwright, The Independent
‘A taut exploration of the shifting landscape, cultural and moral, of the new South Africa.’ -- Erica Wagner, The Times
‘Galgut seems the most likely of the crop of young South African novelists to fill J.M. Coetzee’s shoes.’ -- The Guardian
‘Invites comparison with Greene, Conrad and Naipaul. A very fine novel.’ -- Daily Telegraph
