Publisher Comments:

After years teaching Romantic poetry at the Technical University of Cape
Town, David Lurie, middle-aged and twice divorced, has an impulsive affair
with a student. The affair sours; he is denounced and summoned before
a committee of inquiry. Willing to admit his guilt, but refusing to yield
to pressure to repent publicly, he resigns and retreats to his daughter
Lucy's isolated smallholding. For a time, his daughter's influence and
the natural rhythms of the farm promise to harmonise his discordant life.
But the balance of power in the country is shifting. He and Lucy become
victims of a savage and disturbing attack which brings into relief all
the faultlines in their relationship.
