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. 'This is a truly astonishing novel... I finished Life &
Times of Michael K in a state of elation, for all the misery and
suffering it contains. I cannot recommend it highly enough' Evening
