9780140047165: The Conservationist

Mehring is rich. He 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 stewarsship; even the land rises up, as drought, then flood, destroy his farm.

Product Description:

Mehring, a wealthy, dominating South African industrialist moves to preserve his way of life, his power, and his possessions in the face of massive injustice and suffering, changing times, and death.

Review:

"A triumph of stle ... It is not often that lyrical intelligence and political pupose are combined in so effective a way." --Paul Theroux"Gordimer has written what must be considered her masterpiece. The beauty and largeness of this land she loves is drawn with a breadth and scope that is breathtaking." --St. Louis Post-Dispatch"This is a novel of enormous power." --The New Statesman
