Tuesday, September 30, 7:30 PM Damon Galgut presents Arctic Summer

Internationally acclaimed South African author Damon Galgut (author of the Booker Prize-shortlisted novels The Good Doctor and In a strange room) shifts seamlessly between England, Cairo and India in his new novel Arctic Summer, a fictionalized biography of English author E.M. Forster. Focusing on Forster’s many years in India and the process of writing his masterpiece, A Passage to India, the novel also addresses Forster’s unforgiving childhood in England and the homosexuality he feared and repressed throughout his life. Greenlight is proud to partner with independent publisher Europa Editions to host Galgut in a rare US presentation of his work.
