From one of our most admired fiction writers: the searing story of breakdown and recovery in the life of one man and of a society moving from one idea of itself to another. Keith-born in England in the early 1960s to immigrant West Indian parents but primarily raised by his white stepmother-is a social worker heading a Race Equality unit in London whose life has come undone. He is separated from his wife of twenty years, kept at arm's length by his teenage son, estranged from his father, and accused of harassment by a coworker. And beneath it all, he has a desperate feeling that his work-even in fact his life-is no longer relevant. Deeply moving in its portrayal of the vagaries of family love and bold in its scrutiny of the personal politics of race, this is Caryl Phillips's most powerful novel yet.
