Klassiek-reeks: Die Ambassadeur | General Fiction
André P. Brink
Human & Rousseau
The South African ambassador in France found himself in a personal crisis as severe as the political crisis during the years of apartheid. Brink’s fifth novel, released in 1963, created sensations because of what was then regarded as decadence. The value of the novel, however, was the age-old truth that the desire of self-realisation and human compassion is seldom compatible. The novel takes place in Paris, the city of romance – and of tragedy.
