The Story of An African Farm

The Story of an African Farm - Olive Schreiner, Dan Jacobson

The only thing stopping me from giving this book five stars is that it didn't really have a plot. It's more of a portrait than a story, really, but it's a beautiful portrait, full of word treasure. Schreiner writes about feminism before it existed, and what it means to be human, and what it means to spend your life looking for something that doesn't exist.
