How has Duncan come to abandon the sanctity of human life they taught him? What kind of loyalty do parents owe a self-confessed murderer? In post-apartheid South Africa the defense of their son's life is in the hands of a black man: Hamilton Motsamai, a flamboyant, distinguished advocate returned from political exile. The balance of everything in the parents' world is turned upside down.
The House Gun is a passionate narrative of that final text of complex human relations we call love, moving from the intimate to the general condition. If it is a parable of present violence it is also an affirmation of the will to reconciliation that starts where it must, between individual men and women.

This is a psychologically sophisticated book that deals primarily (not only) with the complicated relationship between parents, and between parents and an adult child in jail for murder. Very wise. One of the only books I read in decades that did stir a sense of guilt in me and provoked and evoked a desire to take action. Generally her stye is very sparing, quick, forcing me to willingly read passages more than once, full of ideas and intricate thoughts and dialogues. It is a stunningly insightful book, and if you read it at the appropriate slow pace will be unforgetable.
