Description-
  • This rich story collection will be a reminder to Nadine Gordimer's countless admirers, and a taster for the uninitiated, of her enduring imaginative power. A woman gauges the state of her marriage by the tone of her husband's cello; a wife reads her husband's mood by the scent in the nape of his neck; a newly emigrated couple are divided by visual obsession, he with his native Budapest, she with South African suburbia. With consummate artistry, Gordimer illustrates the show downs, standoffs and highlights of human intimacy while penetrating the nuances of immigration, national identity and race.

About the Author-
  • Nadine Gordimer's many novels include The Lying Days, The Conservationist, joint winner of the Booker Prize, Get A Life, Burger's Daughter, July's People, My Son's Story, None to Accompany Me, The House Gun and The Pickup. Her collections of short stories include Something Out There, Jump and Loot. She also edited the anthology of stories Telling Tales. In 1991 she was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. She lives in South Africa.
