Description: McClelland & Stewart, 2003. Hardcover. ISBN: 0771032730. Black hard boards with gilt titles to the spine, this is a nice, tightly bound copy with an unmarked interior. The DJ is unclipped and in Near Fine condition. "Shortlisted for the 2003 Man Booker prize, Galgut's fifth novel, his first to be published in the U. S, explores postapartheid South Africa's ambiguous present, where deep-rooted social and political tensions threaten any shared dream for the future. Resigned to self-exile at an inadequate hospital in a desolate former "homeland," the disillusioned Dr. Frank Eloff befriends a new volunteer: fresh-faced Dr. Laurence Waters. Determined to revivify the rural hospital and more broadly, South Africa which has slipped into humdrum dysfunction, Laurence tests Frank's stifled sensibilities and challenges hospital director Dr. Ngema, who frequently quips that she is all for "change and innovation," even though she cannot abide confrontation with her own modest authority."; 0.87 x 8.5 x 5.83 Inches; 215 pages. Very Good+ in Near Fine dust jacket .
