Will, the narrator of this powerfully charged novel, discovers that his father, a political activist and local hero in their South African town, has become involved with a white woman. Wrenching, passionate, deeply resonant, My Son's Story evokes the inexorable yoking of the personal life and politics with uniquely moving force.

Laurel Graeber

...Much of the novel's power and interest derive from her almost uncanny ability to portray each of the novel's characters with sympathy and subtlety....''The book is really about the problems the ordinary forms of love bring within a particular context,'' said Ms. Gordimer, ''in which love of country is inextricably bound up with these other types of love. And by love of country, I don't mean gung-ho patriotism, but involvement with the time.'' --The New York Times
