An essential French essay on Nadine Gordimer's work translated into English

You are passionate about Nadine Gordimer's fictional work? You would like to prolong your reading with a scientific study of her literary demeanour? Then this essay is made for you. Denise Brahimi's "Nadine Gordimer: Waving together Fiction, Women and Politics" is an enthralling book about the first South African awarded with the Nobel prize for literature. Brahimi traces Gordimer's literary evolution from her earliest fictional output to her later work, positioning her analysis against South African contemporary history - the struggle against Apartheid, the first democratic elections, the dawn of a new regime. Translated from the French by Vanessa Everson and Cara Shapiro with the support of IFAS - Institut Fran├žais en Afrique du Sud - and published by Juta, this book offers new perspectives on Gordimer's much praised writing. Denise Brahimi's essay is available in French and English at Dibuka - Johannesburg.
