Summary (From the publisher):

At fifty-two, Professor David Lurie is divorced, filled with desire but lacking in passion. When an affair with a student leaves him jobless, shunned by friends, and ridiculed by his ex-wife, he retreats to his daughter Lucy's smallholding. David's visit becomes an extended stay as he attempts to find meaning in his one remaining relationship. Instead, an incident of unimaginable terror and violence forces father and daughter to confront their strained relationship - and the equally complicated racial complexities of the new South Africa.
