Zustandsbeschreibung
Keine Leserillen, aber einige Bleistiftnotizen im Buch (die ich gerne wegradieren kann); Lager- und Transportspuren wie z.B. angestoßene Coverseiten, am Buchschnitt unten (dort, wo das Buch auf dem Regalboden steht), ist das Buch leicht verfärbt. Insgesamt ist der Zustand ganz OK, d.h. Buch durchaus gepflegt.
Artikelbeschreibung
From the internationally acclaimed and booker prize winning author.
"An authentic work of art... Gordimer´s characters are universal. It is to the moments of greatest stress, when frail structures of idealism are being tested by shaking realities, that Gordimer gives the form of literature."
NEW YORK TIMES

Toby Hood, a young Englishman, shuns the politics and the causes his liberal parents passionately support. Living in Johannesburg as a representative of his family's publishing company, Toby moves easily, carelessly, between the complacent wealthy white suburbs and the seething, vibrantly alive black townships. His friends include a wide variety of people, from mining directors to black journalists and musicians, and Toby's colonial-style weekends are often interspersed with clandestine evenings spent in black shanty towns. Toby's friendship with Steven Sithole, a dashing, embittered young African, touches him in ways he never thought possible, and when Steven's own sense of independence from the rules of society leads to tragedy, Toby's life is changed forever.
