With her characteristic brilliance, Nobel Prize winner Nadine
Gordimer follows the inner lives of characters confronted by
unforeseen circumstances. An earthquake offers tragedy and
opportunity in the title story, exposing both an ocean bed strewn
with treasure and the avarice of the townas survivors. aMission
Statementa is the story of a bureaucratas idealism, the ghosts of
colonial history, and a love affair with a government minister that
ends astoundingly. And in aKarma,a Gordimeras inventiveness knows
no bounds: in five returns to earthly life, a disembodied narrator,
taking on different ages and genders, testifies to unfinished
business and questions the nature of existence. Revelatory and
powerful, these are stories that challenge our deepest convictions
even as they dazzle us with their artful lyricism.
