Product Description
 
Today my father brought home his new bride.

Magda lives on an isolated farm in South Africa with her callous father and their staff, who treat her with disdain. Her psychological state, already precarious, disintegrates when her father takes a black mistress, and a tenuous feudal peace is shattered. In prose rich and vivid, Coetzee re-enacts the colonial experience in the home and in the psyche of one woman, who will not let history overlook her.Today my father brought home his new bride.
