Gordimer sticks to what she knows. It's only a few pages, but well worth the effort. Read full review

Review: The Late Bourgeois World

User Review  - Dennis Murphy - Goodreads

This is a tightly wound slip of a book but not recommended for those that demand closure or are uncomfortable with ambiguity. I read this right after reading The Age of Reason and both books have me wondering about decisions I would make when confronted with a moral dilemma. Read full review
