The winner of this year’s Booker Prize joins us online with a powerful story of a family in crisis..

The Promise charts the crash and burn of a white South African family, living on a farm outside Pretoria. The Swarts are gathering for Ma's funeral. The younger generation, Anton and Amor, detest everything the family stand for - not least the failed promise to the Black woman who has worked for them her whole life. After years of service, Salome was promised her own house, her own land... yet somehow, as each decade passes, that promise remains unfulfilled.

In this story of a diminished family, sharp and tender emotional truths hit home. Confident, deft and quietly powerful, The Promise is literary fiction at its finest.

Damon will be in conversation with Mairi Kidd.

This event is sponsored by Rathbones Folio Prize.

This event will be available to watch for three weeks after the broadcast date of 6th May 2022 to accommodate different time zones (removed after 27th May 2022). This performance is included in the Aye Write 2022 festival pass, so you will not need to purchase this event if you have already purchased a pass.
