From the Publisher
After 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 farm. For a
time, his daughter''s influence and the natural rhythms of the farm
promise to harmonize 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 faults in
their relationship. Chilling, uncompromising and unforgettable,
Disgrace is a masterpiece.
