In an extraordinary period immediately before the first non-racial election and the beginning of majority rule in South Africa, Vera Stark, the protagonist of Nadine Gordimer's passionate novel, weaves a ruthless interpretation of her own past into her participation in the present as a lawyer representing blacks in the struggle to reclaim the land.

The return of exiles is transforming the city, and through the lives of Didymus Maqoma, his wife Sibongile, and their lovely daughter who cannot even speak her parents' African language, the listener experiences the strange passions, reversals, and dangers that accompany new-won access to power.

    " Just finished this for book club. The woman is a genius with syntax! Good tool for teaching devices like epistrophe and anastrophe. Oh, and it's pretty much Fitzgerald on crack: fragmentation and isolation and a whole lot of disconnect. Politcal. Not a read for the story book. Wonderful! "
