Nadine Gordimer's novel is a passionate narrative of the complex manifestations of that final test of human relations we call love. It moves with the restless pace of living itself; if it is a parable of present violence, it is also an affirmation of the will to reconciliation that starts where it must, between individual men and women.

Could you bring me more books. You don’t have to wait for next week, you can deliver them to the Commissioner’s office. But he embraced her, across the table, she took with her on her cheek the graze of what must have been several days’ beard; shut away there he was doing what she knew men did to change their picture of themselves, growing the hair on their faces. There would be no mirror in a prison, shards of glass are a weapon, but he could put up his hand and feel the image.

Gordimer is a very serious 1991 Nobelprize winner poilitical writer, who put herself in harm's way and did not only write about the plight of the victims but also took action. She was arrested and spent time in jail for fighting against the Apartheid in South Africa. Much of her writing dealt with the ethical dilemas of the silent majorities in different ethical issues (not only but mostly Apartheid), not sparing the feelings of most of us who sympathize but do nothing or even avoid hearing about the plight of others.

This is a psychologically sophisticated book that deals primarily (not only) with the complicated relationship between parents, and between parents and an adult child in jail for murder. Very wise. One of the only books I read in decades that did stir a sense of guilt in me and provoked and evoked a desire to take action. Generally her stye is very sparing, quick, forcing me to willingly read passages more than once, full of ideas and intricate thoughts and dialogues. It is a stunningly insightful book, and if you read it at the appropriate slow pace will be unforgetable.

While not so widely read, Nadine Gordimer has a clear and separate style, a complex weaving of relationships in a post apartheid South Africa. I was glad to revisit her writings and found it rewarding.

Once again Nadine Gordimer brings out her political sledgehammer - and this from someone who happens to agree with her viewpoint, so this is not just a dislocated criticism of her opinions. Despite that, she writes well as always, and her insights into the emotional impact of the murder on each person are excellent, if sometimes too-oft repeated.

This is the first time I have ever read anything by Nadine Gordimer. I think it was a very interesting study about how two people who are married react when their child murders someone. In this case, the guilt which they experience, and how the husband and wife have different reactions to what Duncan's done is quite interesting.
One of her best books. She is able to describe the subtle contacts between black and white intellectuals after the Apartheid period.
