Reprint. Originally published: London: Gollancz, 1953.

Nadine Gordimer's first novel, published in 1953, tells the story of Helen Shaw, daughter of white middle-class parents in a small gold-mining town in South Africa.

As Helen comes of age, so does her awareness grow of the African life around her.

Her involvement, as a bohemian student, with young blacks leads her into complex relationships of emotion and action in a culture of dissension.
