Product Overview

Gordimer tells the story of two couples, one white, one black, whose relationships evolve as their homeland, South Africa, heads toward majority rule.

Author Info
Nadine Gordimer
Nadine Gordimer was born in 1923 in Springs, South Africa, a mining town that she describes as one of the few ugly places in a beautiful country. She attended private schools and, later, the University of the Witwatersrand, where she spent only one year. She has been married twice and has two children. She began writing as a child and has been a writer virtually all of her life, publishing her first book, a collection of short stories entitled FACE TO FACE, in 1949. When The New Yorker published a story of hers in 1951, Gordimer's talent was brought to international attention. Gordimer writes with a sense of social consciousness; many of her works confront issues of race, particularly in apartheid South Africa. Extending her work as a writer, Gordimer has been politically active as a member of the African National Congress (testifying in 1986 in the trial of anti-apartheid activists) and an AIDS advocate. Her non-fiction account of censorship, THE LATE BOURGEOIS WORLD, was banned for 10 years in South Africa. Gordimer won the Booker Prize in 1974 for her novel THE CONSERVATIONIST, which with the utmost subtlety examines the contradictions at work in the life of a tolerant, wealthy South African landowner. Gordimer was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature in 1991 for her "magnificent epic writing," which has "been of very great benefit to humanity."
Praise
"This post-Nobel, post-apartheid novel--Gordimer's least political and most emotionally intricate--may well be the finest she has ever produced."
