Book Description Penguin. Softcover. Book Condition: Neu. Ohne Schutzumschlag. Nadine Gordimer - Something out there, 10 Short Stories, 203 S. Taschenbuch Großformat Penguin Seiten ganz leicht vergilbt . This powerful collection of short stories and a novella reflects Nadine Gordimer's extraordinary ability to illuminate the connection between the personal and the political in the divided society of South Africa. With compassion and scrupulous honesty, Gordimer penetreates to the core of the human heart, revealing the subtlest feelings of her characters - black and white, revolutionaries and racists, adulterers, spinsters and lovers. The long novella that is the centerpiece of this book is the story of a white couple and two black revolutionaries counterpointed with reports of a strange creature ravaging an elite suburb of Johannisburg. As she depicts these ironically parallel situations, Gordimer conveys the tremors of a violent universe beyond the specific events. And she brilliantly captures here, and in the other stories, the inner tremors caused by love, despair, betrayal, and exaltation. .
