Nadine Gordimer Memorial

Fiction

Interviewed by: Rebekah Presson

Catalog Number: 20140808

We remember the Nobel Prize-winning South African writer Nadine Gordimer, who passed away on July 13, 2014.  In this 1994 interview with former New Letters on the Air host, Rebekah Presson, Gordimer reads from her novel None to Accompany Me, set on the eve of all-race elections. In the book, her protagonist, Vera Stark, examines her past as a lawyer for blacks attempting to reclaim the land. Gordimer talks about the dilemma of conscience for whites in South Africa, and why it’s important for these stories to be told in fiction.
