Disgrace, Paperback / softback Book

Description

'A great novel by one of the finest authors writing in the English language today' The TimesAfter years teaching Romantic poetry at the Technical University of Cape Town, David Lurie, middle-aged and twice divorced, has an impulsive affair with a student.

The affair sours; he is denounced and summoned before a committee of inquiry.

Willing to admit his guilt, but refusing to yield to pressure to repent publicly, he resigns and retreats to his daughter Lucy's isolated smallholding. For a time, his daughter's influence and the natural rhythms of the farm promise to harmonise his discordant life.

But the balance of power in the country is shifting.

He and Lucy become victims of a savage and disturbing attack which brings into relief all the faultlines in their relationship. **One of the BBC's 100 Novels That Shaped Our World**INCLUDES A READING GUIDE
