'My so-called spirituality came from no religion or god,' Mandela told Nadine Gordimer, the Nobel laureate in Literature, when he was released from prison. Ascribing spiritual enlightenment to an imaginary god is akin to degrading one's in-built spiritual divinity. Rauf Akhtar stated in his Taslees: 'Khud ko na ...
Nadine Gordimer was a writer, a political activist, and the only South African woman to win the Nobel Prize. She received the award in 1991 for literature. Some of her books, including Burger's Daughter and July's People rubbed the Apartheid government the wrong way, and were banned, as she used her ...
In 1968, as more profitable mines were opening west and south of the Rand, a selection of Goldblatt's photos appeared in Optima magazine with an essay by Nadine Gordimer, 'A Time and Tailings'.

Is this the celebrated South African Nobel Laureate Nadine Gordimer in 1980, talking about the role of the writer in the struggle against apartheid? Or. Is it the vampire writer Anne Rice, in 2015, on Facebook, talking about Christ knows what? The answer will not surprise you. I cheated a tiny bit, just to make ...

In the 20th century, few places exemplified that more finely than South Africa, where writers like JM Coetzee, Nadine Gordimer, and Alan Paton came of age. In Johannesburg, museums like the South African National Museum and the Nelson Mandela Centre examine the role that writing played in the ...
South Africa has spread its soft power through Nobel peace laureates Albert Luthuli, Desmond Tutu, Nelson Mandela and FW de Klerk, as well as Nobel literature laureates Nadine Gordimer and John Coetzee. The country successfully organised Africa's first football World Cup in 2010, hosted and won ...

There will be some strange anomalies in the judges' reading: twice, two authors have shared the Booker, with Nadine Gordimer and Stanley Middleton both winning the prize in 1974, and Barry Unsworth and Michael Ondaatje sharing it in 1992. The Lost Man Booker prize was also launched in 2010, ...
... he wondered how his younger self would have reacted if he'd one day known he'd be sharing the stage with 'a Booker prize-winning, South African, Nobel prize-winning novelist'… and then deciding that his younger self would have said: 'That's incredible, because Nadine Gordimer is my favourite writer.
And immediately I think of Nadine Gordimer's novel A Guest of Honour. James Bray was a British colonial administrator in an unnamed central African state. He's fundamentally a decent person and he sides with the country's freedom fighters, its would-be liberators. For his pains he is removed from his post, ...
The relationship between [Nadine Gordimer's] writing and her social responsibility was one of the central questions of her life.

Reading is an ever-receding horizon with one book leading to another and that to still others, ad infinitum. So it is that Toni Morrison's 'The Origin of Others' (Harvard University, 2017) led me to 'A Good Man is Hard To Find' by Flannery O'Connor (1925-1964) and in that anthology to 'The Artificial Nigger'.
The Office of Inclusive Excellence will host a panel discussion on March 27 that will explore the success of the movie “Black Panther” to inform the question of whether “art…, in the words of Nobel Laureate Nadine Gordimer, “…is on the side of the oppressed” or the oppressor.

In Sri Lanka, children and young people politely address those much older as “Uncle” or “Aunt”, even if the person is not related. Sivanandan recalls that in 1958, seeing someone he didn't know in the house of his (Sinhalese) mother-in-law, he asked his eldest daughter, aged about five, who that uncle was ...
SA is a country that is singularly lacking in real debate: it only knows slogans and monochrome distinctions between good and evil. Nelson Mandela was a saint and Verwoerd a disciple of the devil. Nadine Gordimer, who the zealous Swedes thought worthy of the Nobel Prize, publicly admitted she dealt in ...
I had Nadine Gordimer's My Son's Story in my hand. I had read it a long time ago. Should I buy a copy for myself, I wondered. I opened it to a random page and read a couple of pages. I decided to add it to my pile. I walked along, nose buried in the book, bag weighing down on one shoulder and the cell ...
