Mehring is rich. He has all the privileges and possessions that South Africa has to offer, but his possessions refuse to remain objects. His wife, son, and mistress leave him; his foreman and workers become increasingly indifferent to his stewardship; even the land rises up, as drought, then flood, destroy his farm.

About the Author:

Nadine Gordimer is the author of eleven previous novels, as well as collections of stories and essays. She has received many awards, including the Booker Prize (for The Conservationist in 1974) and the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1991. She lives in Johannesburg, South Africa.

From AudioFile:

Nadine Gordimer observes South Africa's decay largely through the internal monologues of a wealthy businessman disconnected from life. He cultivates empty affairs and the land he owns with an eye toward profit and loss. Perhaps Nadia May's straightforward narration reflects the flat, detached quality of this existence too well; her voice scarcely changes pace or emotional intensity. While this reading style suits the story's mood, it drags. Fortunately, May provides relief by skillfully adapting her mild British accent to the dialects of the various social classes. While not exciting, this presentation certainly seems true to Gordimer's vision. D.J. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
