Description

In just one morning, he forgot who he was...

Three provocative and interconnected stories from one of the world's greatest living writers:

A white painter in Africa comes to his studio in the afternoon. On his doorstep, he sees a woman with curly hair and a dark complexion. He has never seen her before, but she embraces him. As he steps past her, two strange children rush to his feet yelling "Daddy!" This family welcomes himhome, but he knows none of them.

On the other side of Cape Town, a white man pulls himself out of bed and toward his mirror, where he is confronted by his suddenly black face.

A concert pianist falls passionately in love with the celebrated singer he works beside, but cannot bring himself to touch her, until one night they sit down to eat dinner, and look up to see themselves surrounded by armed men.

In this new novel, Andre Brink is at his best, exploring the fractured yet globalized world where we find ourselves and our lives transformed.

PRAISE FOR ANDRE BRINK

"South African novelist Brink is a master stylist." Publishers Weekly

"Brink describes calamities and absurdities of the apartheid system with a cold lucidity that in no way interferes with high emotion and daring flights of the imagination." Mario Vargas Llosa, NewYork Times Book Review

"One of the most important and prolific voices from South Africa." Library Journal

"If you want to get the feeling of South Africa, as strongly as Camus gives you the feeling of Algiers, you will turn to Andr#65533; Brink." Tribune

"Brink writes feelingly of South Africa--the land, the black, the white, the terrible beauty and tragedy that lies therein." Publishers Weekly

"Brink is a hard-eyed storyteller." Philadelphia Inquirer

A landmark book that blazed light on one of the business world's dirtiest secrets, The Bully at Work exposed the destructive, silent epidemic of workplace bullying that devastates the lives, careers, and families of millions. In this completely updated new edition based on an updated survey of workplace issues, the authors explore new grounds of bullying in the 21st century workplace.

Gary and Ruth Namie, pioneers of the Campaign Against Workplace Bullying, teach the reader personal strategies to identify allies, build their confidence, and stand up to the tormentor—or decide when to walk away with their sanity and dignity intact.

The Namies' expertise on workplace bullying has been featured in such media outlets as The Early Show, CBS Radio, The Howard Stern Show, CNN, PBS, NPR, USA Today, and the Washington Post.

"This is the best book on what workplace bullies do and how to stop them in their tracks. The Namies' remarkably useful and concrete advice has helped millions of people, and The Bully at Work will spread their tried-and-true wisdom to millions more." –Robert I. Sutton, Stanford Professor and author of The No Asshole Rule
