about

WINNER of the 2013 McNally Robinson Manitoba Book of the YearThe House on Sugarbush Road, set in post-apartheid Johannesburg shortly after the 1994 election of Nelson Mandela, is the story of the intertwining lives of a once prominent liberal Afrikaner family and Beauty Mapule, their domestic servant of more than thirty years. Cook's intimately interconnected and finely drawn characters are white, black, rich, poor, beautiful, ugly, old and young; they are also hustlers, do-gooders, petty criminals and sensualists, heading towards dramatic explosions both inevitable and unexpected.

Editorial Reviews

"Cook has written a powerful, lyrical novel that ends quietly but with profound impact." - Quill & Quire, starred review "I finished The House on Sugarbush Road stunned at the sheer life on its pages. I felt I had seen South Africa in a way that will always shape my thinking about it. The beauty of the language, the author's eye for moving and incongruous detail, her understanding of the searing realities of post-Apartheid South Africa - all are extraordinary. What Meira Cook especially grasps and explores with great delicacy are the ties that bind her characters together: a shared past, but also greed, need, and something approaching love." - Joan Thomas, author of Curiosity
