Reviews

"Nadine Gordimer [is] one of the grand chroniclers of the era...[She] gives the power of voice to a world where history so often seems to stamp out hope." --Jill Piggott, The Boston Globe Review

"Gripping and important...A rare glimpse of the crumbling of the last bastion of colonialism, told by a writer of consummate skill." --Steven Harvey, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"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; her partisanship has not compromised her artistic distance. Great writers can retain political faith; they can believe and create. This is an important message for all aspirant writers of the next century." --The Independent (London)
