A long time ago, in a bountiful land not so far away, the animal denizens lived quite happily. Then the colonisers arrived. After nearly 100 years, a bloody War of Liberation brought new hope for the animals – along with a new leader. A charismatic horse who commanded the sun and ruled and ruled and kept on ruling. For 40 years he ruled, with the help of his elite band of Chosen Ones, a scandalously violent pack of Defenders and, as he aged, his beloved and ambitious young donkey wife, Marvellous. But even the sticks and stones know there is no night ever so long it does not end with dawn. And so it did for the Old Horse, one day as he sat down to his Earl Grey tea and favourite radio programme. A new regime, a new leader. Or apparently so. And once again, the animals were full of hope.

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 Review
Narrated 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.
‘Glory is a masterpiece for our times. Gripping and exhilarating’ Observer
