Pretorian-born Damon Galgut first came to the notice of British readers in 2003 with The Good Doctor, a dark, disturbing tale of a run-down hospital in the post-Apartheid homelands. It was shortlisted for a sheaf of prizes, including the Booker. His long-awaited new novel, The Impostor, deserves to replicate that success.
