Listing Detail Tabs

A young Afrikaner is drawn into a conspiracy to assassinate the president of South Africa. The attempt fails, leaving black and white bystanders dead in its wake, and he flees consumed with grief but still convinced of the rightness of his actions. There are echoes here of Nadine Gordimer's BURGER'S DAUGHTER and Marge Piercy's VIDA, but Brink's story is wholly his own. The novel moves back and forth with ease among the varied voices that comprise Thomas's life - family, lovers, terrorists, blacks, pursuers - to expose the corrosive effects of a vicious and corrupt system on its supporters and opponents alike. The novel is not comfortable to read, for its burning indignation leaves no room for moral complacency. Yet Brink sympathizes with the plight of oppressor as well as oppressed; everyone pays in a system of absolute injustice. There will be few books this year as good as this, and none that moves the heart as much."
