James Bray, an English colonial administrator who was expelled from a central African nation for siding with its black nationalist leaders, is invited back ten years later to join in the country's independence celebrations. As he witnesses the factionalism and violence that erupt as revolutionary ideals are subverted by ambition and greed, Bray is once again forced to choose sides, a choice that becomes both his triumph and his undoing.

'Gordimer writes of blacks and whites, but her steady, unblinking eye sees something grey there. You could call it human nature and you would be right. Her true subject is humankind, as it is for every great writer' DAILY TELEGRAPH 'Nadine Gordimer is a great writer ... it is Turgenev she most brings to mind' NEW YORK REVIEW OF BOOKS
