About the Author:

Christopher Hope was born in Johannesburg in 1944. He is the author of nine novels and one collection of short stories, including Kruger's Alp, which won the Whitbread Prize for Fiction, Serenity House, which was shortlisted for the 1992 Booker Prize; and My Mother's Lovers, published by Atlantic Books in 2006 to great acclaim. He is also a poet and playwright and author of the acclaimed memoir White Boy Running (1988).


'A Separate Development is one of the best books ever written about South Africa' Peter Porter, Observer 'Hope's comic vision of this crazy and tragic state of affairs expertly brings off the difficult feat of providing both an entertaining novel, rich in lovingly evoked detail and character, and a profound political indictment.' William Boyd, Sunday Times 'A remarkable first novel... exquisitely funny.' Literary Review
