Description

'The most powerful and illuminating novel about South Africa that I have ever read, but its ambition - and achievement - runs far, far beyond that ...' - R.W. Johnson in New SocietyIn this brilliantly realized work Nadine Gordimer unfolds the story of a young woman's slowly evolving identity in the turbulent political environment of South Africa in the days of apartheid. The prison death of her father Lionel Burger leaves Rosa alone to explore the intricacies of what it really means to be Burger's daughter. Moving through sensuously described landscapes in Europe and South Africa, through painful love affairs and an overwhelming flood of memories that will not release her, she arrives at last at an understanding of a life bounded on all sides by forces not of her own choosing.'The book has a passionate urgency and suspense, rich, intimate, even confessional ... there are bits one re-reads for their almost opulent sensuousness' - Anthony Thwaite in the Observer
