    Lessing's first novel is an inciteful picture of the destructiveness of
    Apartheid. Her portrait of Mary, a white woman, obsessed and
    constrained by the racial protocols of the time and who moves from
    depression into madness, can stand for all of South African society.
    This is a book that despite being decades old will stay with you.
