The Grass is Singing, by Doris May Lessing

A short but rather depressing book by Nobel laureate Lessing, about a disastrous marriage between two white colonists in the future Zimbabwe; a vivid pair of psychological portraits, though the motivation for the crime that starts and ends the book seemed a bit obscure to me and rather played into rather than against racist stereotypes.
