"Faultness novelistic art...only equaled in our time by such masters as Graham Greene and V.S. Naipual." (Francine du Plessix Gray)
Its a pleasure to read Nadine Gordimer's prose. The story concerns the daughter of revolutionaries in South Africa--growing up as a member of the underground with legendary parents who were repeatedly imprisoned. She is then left to assume her individual identity, juggling the many people captivated by their images of her, expectations that she will carry on her parents' legacy, and her own principles and need for individuality. The book captures the beauty and brutality of South Africa, a land with so many contradictions--racists and heroes, open wild spaces and strictly imposed barriers, and of course black and white. Nadia May captures South African accents wonderfully.
I really, really wanted to hear this audiobook, but the quality of the recording was so bad I had to give up. I hope that Audible finds a new version, as this is a book that deserves to be heard...
I can't say anything about the book itself. The sound is so bad that I gave it up after a few minutes.
