9780747596189: Life Times: Stories, 1952-2007 (English and German Edition)

Throughout her career the internationally renowned South African writer Nadine Gordimer has built a literary reputation with her incisive short stories as much as with her acclaimed novels. Together with her essays, this highly imaginative and committed body of work won her the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1991. In the opinion of the Academy: 'Through her magnificent epic writing she has - in the words of Alfred Nobel - been of very great benefit to humanity.' Gordimer has said that while novelists take the reader by the hand developing 'a consistency of relationship that does not and cannot convey the quality of human life, where contact is more like the flash of fireflies, in and out, now here, now there, in darkness. Short-story writers see by the light of the flash; theirs is the only thing one can be sure of - the present moment.' Now, for the first time, the best of her stories are published in one volume.

About the Author:

Nadine Gordimer has written many novels and collections of short stories. She also edited the anthology of stories Telling Tales in support of HIV and AIDS preventive education and for medical treatment for people in southern Africa. In 1991 she was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. She lives in South Africa.

From Booklist:

“Life Times” indeed. Born in South Africa in 1923, and a resident of Johannesburg since 1948, Gordimer began writing about her conflictful world at a very young age. The short story is her favorite literary form and the perfect vessel for her keen observations of family and social life in a country where racial, class, language, and gender divides have been so zealously guarded and so courageously breached. An antiapartheid activist, Gordimer earned the 1991 Nobel Prize in Literature in part by writing exacting, unflinching stories about how hate and injustice poison and warp every interaction. This grand gathering, the fiction companion to her essay collection, Telling Times: Writing and Living, 1954–2008 (2010), showcases Gordimer’s gift for concentrating the many forms of suffering humankind instigates and endures within calamitous and transforming moments. Her cutting stories dramatize with fluent specificity the evolution of liberation in South Africa. But they are also headline-fresh and timelessly universal as Gordimer, skeptical and compassionate, reveals how intimately entwined politics and private lives are, and how there is no such thing as apartness. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Nobel laureate Gordimer is a literary giant, and this milestone volume will draw readers familiar with and new to her fiction. --Donna Seaman
