No other collection exists that brings together over 50 years of Gordimer's political, literary, and cultural essays. This will be the definitive collection of her work. This collection will be seen as an opportunity to recognise one of the great literary lives in the 20th century and review coverage is guaranteed.
Nadine Gordimer's many novels include The Conservationist, joint winner of the Booker Prize, Get A Life, Burger's Daughter, July's People, My Son's Story and The Pickup. Her collections of short stories include The Soft Voice of the Serpent, Something Out There, Jump and, most recently, Loot. She also edited the anthology of stories Telling Tales. In 1991 she was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. She lives in South Africa.
'Gordimer has undoubtedly become one of the World's Great Writers ... her rootedness in a political time, place and faith has never dimmed her complex gifts as an artist.' * Independent *
