Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: [This is the Audiobook CD Library Edition in vinyl case.]

Nadine Gordimer, winner of the 1991 Nobel Prize in Literature, paints a fascinating portrait of a man both reckless and calculating, a ''conservationist'' left only with the possibility of self-preservation, in this subtle and detailed study of the forces and relationships that seethe in South Africa today.

Mehring, a rich, powerful and vital industrialist, 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; and even the land rises up, as drought, then flood, destroy his farm.

A joint winner of the Booker Prize.
