9780061138638: A Dry White Season

Ben du Toit is an ordinary, decent, harmless man, unremarkable in every way - until his sense of justice is outraged by the death of a man he has known. His friend died at the hands of the police. In the beginning it appears a straightforward matter, an unfortunate error that can be explained and put right. But as Ben investigates further he finds that his curiosity becomes labelled rebellion - and for a rebel there is no way back.

Review:

"Excellent...[a] harrowing and surprising story. The ultimate power of the book comes from an authoritative meditation on the traps that open up for someone who answers to himself before society" ( Scotsman)

"The revolt of the reasonable...far more deadly than any amount of shouting from the housetops" ( Guardian)

"Impossible to recommend too highly" ( Time Out)

"Books like this one succeed...in drawing our emotions into politics. What will remain is the plain bravery of his characters...their struggle has found an honest chronicler" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Andre Brink's writing is built on conviction... A Dry White Season describes the triumph of tyranny" ( The Times)

Book Description:

A man investigating the death of a friend discovers the dangers of curiosity - a moral thriller from the internationally-acclaimed, Booker-shortlisted Andre Brink.
