'A great novel by one of the finest authors writing in the English
language today' The Times 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. **One of the
BBC's 100 Novels That Shaped Our World** INCLUDES A READING GUIDE
