Synopsis of The Many Houses of Exile:

In the mid-eighties, at the height of the crisis in South Africa, Richard Jurgens, a young white man, joins the predominantly black revolutionary movement. Having undergone the initiations of compulsory military service and of university, he leaves his world of relative privilege and goes to work for the movement in exile. There he and his wife discover that idealism has no place in the revolution, and that cynicism and authoritarianism exist on both sides of the fateful chasm between blacks and whites in Africa . . .
