The Grass is Singing.
by Lessing, Doris.
Thomas Y. Crowell,
A Very good plus copy with a small bump to one corner in a Very Good plus, unclipped dust jacket with light soiling to rear panel and modest edgewear to extremities. Set in South Africa under white rule, Doris Lessing's first novel is both a riveting chronicle of human disintegration and a beautifully understated social critique. 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 work their slow poison, and Mary's despair progresses until the fateful arrival of an enigmatic and virile black servant, Moses. Locked in anguish, Mary and Moses -- master and slave -- are trapped in a web of mounting attraction and repulsion.
