Editor reviews

In this 1961 appearance at the 92nd Street Y, South African writer Nadine Gordimer reads two short stories, "A Style of Her Own" and "The Bridegroom". Though the Y is a Jewish cultural center, it embraces people of all faiths and backgrounds in a spirit of inclusion. Gordimer fits remarkably into this ecumenical spirit, for was an outspoken critic of South Africa's divisive apartheid regime, both through her art and through political activism. Her work is morally charged, often dealing with race and injustice. In this reading, the Nobel Prize-winner's voice is powerful, eloquent, and inflected with a taut and gorgeous Johannesburg accent.

Summary

Nobel Laureate Nadine Gordimer reads her short stories "A Style of Her Own" and "The Bridegroom." Gordimer is a writer and political activist born in South Africa and dedicated to the anti-Apartheid movement and HIV/AIDS causes.

Not that great

Okay interview, but a bit of a snooze fest. Wanted it to be more exciting.
