Damon Galgut - New literature on South Africa

My first 2009 discovery of an amazing new author. New story in the Paris Review above.

His writing reminds me of Sam Shepard's stories and a little bit of Beryl Bainbridge's (even though the political analogy was either missing or vague in theirs)

Sure enough, I later find out that he studied, and teaches, drama.

Must read the "follower" and the "impostor".
