Why haven't you written?: selected stories, 1950-1972
South Africa in the 20th century is Nobel Prize-winner Gordimer's setting, and this volume of stories records, against the vivid beauty of the country, the failed liberalism of the 1950s, the years of increased repression, and the resulting armed struggle and exile in the 1960s and '70s that lie behind the hard-won changing world of South Africa today.
