An exhilarating Animal Farm-inspired novel about power and corruption set in an animal nation trapped in a cycle as old as time, by one of the most exciting voices writing today. ‘Bulawayo is really out-Orwelling Orwell. This is a satire with sharper teeth, angrier, and also very, very funny’New York Times Book ReviewNarrated by a vivid chorus of animal voices that unveil the tyranny and ruthlessness required to uphold absolute power, Glory is the tale of an uprising and a country’s implosion.
And at the centre of it all, a young goat named Destiny, returning home to bear witness to a revolution. Urgent, wild, dazzling with life and an irrepressible wit, Glory is a razor-sharp satire that unpicks power and shows how history can be halted in a moment.
