Nadine Gordimer Revisited
Twayne Publishers, 1999 - Literary Criticism - 166 pages
"Nadine Gordimer, winner of the 1991 Nobel Prize for Literature, is one of Africa's most distinguished writers of novels, short stories, essays, and book reviews. A South African citizen who remained in that country through the bitterly racist years of apartheid, she gained a reputation for her political activism, particularly her championing of human rights." "In this appraisal of Gordimer's twelve novels, Barbara Temple-Thurston stresses the writer's enduring quality as an artist beyond the confines of the politics of apartheid."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
