After a few false starts and stops, I finally got into this extremely well-told tale of apartheid and revolution in South Africa. The beauty of it is that the secret lives of each family member can get so engrossing, that you seem to actually know them.

小時候在雜誌裡頭讀到篇文章，寫高一生的生平，印象最深的是，該文特別強調他是看得懂尼采的知識份子。當讀到小說主角Sonny從Kafka的虛構世界裡，找到了現實社會的映射，我不期然想起高一生和尼采來: “Kafka named what he had no names for. The town whose walls were wandered around by the Saturday people was the Castle; the library whose doors he stood before were the gates of the law at which K. sat, year after year, always to be told he must wait for entry. The sin for which the schoolteacher’s kind were banished to a prescribed area, proscribed in everything they did【…】was the sin Joseph K was summoned to answer for to an immanent power” （17）
