Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a South Africa torn by civil war, Michael K sets out to take his mother back to her rural home. On the way there she dies, leaving him alone in an anarchic world of brutal roving armies. Imprisoned, Michael is unable to bear confinement and escapes, determined to live with dignity. Life and Times of Michael K goes to the centre of human experience — the need for an interior, spiritual life, for some connections to the world in which we live, and for purity of vision.
