Promotional Information

'Hope writes with extraordinary exuberance and invention. His narrative is like one of the great rivers of Africa, carrying everything before it, and dazzling the eyes with its glitter... This powerful, disturbing, scintillating novel confirms me in my view that Hope is one of the dozen best novelists in this country today.' Francis King, Literary Review

About the Author

Christopher Hope was born in Johannesburg in 1944. He is the author of seven novels, including Kruger's Alp, winner of the Whitbread Prize for Fiction, and Serenity House, which was shortlisted for the 1992 Booker Prize. He is also a poet and playwright and author of the celebrated memoir White Boy Running. His latest non-fiction book, Brothers Under the Skin: Travels in Tyranny was published in 2003.


"'My Mother's Lovers is a deceptive kind of masterpiece. It is wonderful on the matter of human belonging and tribal instinct, terrific on the whole subject of the European penetration of Africa, but most impressive of all as a panoramic evocation of the South Africa of our times.' Jan Morris 'Hope has undertaken the imaginative project of outwriting a society that, as it lives out its fantasies, ventures deeper and deeper into the theatre of cruelty, enacting a tangled, horrifying dark comedy.' J.M. Coetzee on White Boy Running"
