Quickie recap: David Lurie leaves his professorship amid scandal and goes to live with his daughter in rural Africa where his original disgrace starts to look tempting by comparison.
Quickie review: There were parts of this book that literally gave me a sore stomach. It was at times an uncomfortable read, but it obviously has the power to elicit a response, so I have to give it props.
Quickie recommendation: If nothing else, this was a brilliant insight into an interesting culture.
