"Superb...a series of masterly drawn glimpses into the
storymaking art of one of Africa's great modern literary geniuses."
-Alan Cheuse, NPR
A selection of short stories written to date by Nobel Laureate
Nadine Gordimer, "Life Times" reveals her acute understanding of
human nature and paints a fascinatingly original portrait of South
Africa. Whether focusing on politics, sexuality, race, love, or
loss, Gordimer maps out the terrain of human relationships with
razor-sharp psychological insight and a stunning lack of
sentimentality. Complex and multifaceted, her stories challenge us,
time and again, to examine the conflict between our actions and our
unspoken desires. This powerful collection, which includes two new
stories, is a testament to Gordimer's literary genius and the
ongoing power and relevance of her vision.
