Living in Hope and History
Notes From Our CenturyBook - 1999
Internationally celebrated for her novels, Nadine Gordimer has devoted much of her life and fiction to the political struggles of the third world, the New World, and her native South Africa. Living in Hope and History is an on-the-spot record of her years as a public figure -- an observer of apartheid and its aftermath, a member of the ANC, and the champion of dissident writers everywhere. Including her reminiscences of Nelson Mandela and Gunter Grass, her correspondence with the Japanese novelist Kenzaburo Oe, and her reflections on race in Africa and America, these passionate writings lay bare the preoccupations of a lifetime.
