Living in Hope and History 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)
