Conditie

A divorced; middle-aged English professor finds himself increasingly unable to resist affairs with his female students. When discovered by the college authorities; he is expected to apologise and repent in an effort to save his job; but he refuses to become a scapegoat in what he sees as a show trial designed to reinforce a stringent political correctness. He preempts the authorities and leaves his job; and the city; to spend time with his grown-up lesbian daughter on her remote farm.Things between them are strained - there is much from the past they need to reconcile - and the situation becomes critical when they are the victims of a brutal and horrifying attack. In spectacularly powerful and lucid prose; Coetzee uses all his formidable skills to engage with a post-apartheid culture in unexpected and revealing ways. This examination into the sexual and political lawlines of modern South Africa as it tries desperately to start a fresh page in its history is chilling; uncompromising and unforgettable.
