Description
"Ours is the most solitary of occupations; the only comparison I can think of is keeper of a lighthouse. But the analogy mustn't go too far," insisted the late Nobel Prize winner Nadine Gordimer. "We do not cast the beam of light that will save the individual, or the world from coming to grief on the rocks." With this comprehensive collection of her nonfiction, however—91 works written over 55 years—Gordimer demonstrates the insight and the unflagging determination to end injustice in South Africa that have made her a literary beacon, moral activist, and political visionary.

"Nadine Gordimer's work is endowed with an emotional genius so palpable one experiences it like a finger pressing steadily upon the prose."—Village Voice

"The reader shares in Gordimer's 'euphoria' when Mandela is released from prison, and the cause of her lifetime finally triumphs. Fittingly, these years also mark the climax of Telling Times.... Gordimer's writing reveals the power of 'engagement,' in the broad and humane sense in which she defined it: 'the writer's exploration of the particular meaning that being has taken on in his or her time and place'."—NYTBR
