As we inhabit the heads of several key characters ? some kids who have it, some who don´t, some who are about to get it ? what unfolds isn´t the expected battle to fight the plague, or bring heightened awareness to it , or even to treat it.

Set in Southern Rhodesia under white rule, Doris Lessing´s first novel is at once a riveting chronicle of human disintegration, a beautifully understated social critique, and a brilliant depiction of the quiet horror of one woman´s struggleagainst a ruthless fate. Mary Turner is a self-confident, independent young woman who becomes the depressed, frustrated wife of an ineffectual, unsuccessful farmer. Little by little the ennui of years on the farm works its slow poison. Mary´s despair progresses until the fateful arrival of Moses, an enigmatic, virile black servant. Locked in anguish, Mary and Moses-master and slave-are trapped in a web of mounting attraction and repulsion, until their psychic tension explodes with devastating consequences.
