9780061138638
As startling and powerful as when first published more than two decades ago, Andre Brink's classic novel, A Dry White Season, is an unflinching and unforgettable look at racial intolerance, the human condition, and the heavy price of morality. Ben Du Toit is a white schoolteacher in suburban Johannesburg in a dark time of intolerance and state-sanctioned apartheid. A simple, apolitical man, he believes in the essential fairness of the South African government and its policies--until the sudden arrest and subsequent "suicide" of a black janitor from Du Toit's school. Haunted by new questions and desperate to believe that the man's death was a tragic accident, Du Toit undertakes an investigation into the terrible affair--a quest for the truth that will have devastating consequences for the teacher and his family, as it draws him into a lethal morass of lies, corruption, and murder.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Andre BrinkPublisher: William Morrow & CompanyPublished: 09/19/2006ISBN: 9780061138638Pages: 316Weight: 0.55lbsSize: 8.06h x 5.34w x 0.74dAccelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 71290 / Dry White SeasonReading Level: 5.9 / Interest Level: Upper Grade / Point Value: 17
