Fiction Podcast: Tessa Hadley Reads Nadine Gordimer

Nadine Gordimer // 1923-2014. Her literary work led her into the heart of apartheid, creating a body of fiction that won a Nobel Prize (1991). Once Afrikaner nationalists came to power in ‘48, the scaffolds of the apartheid system (1948-94) rose around her and could not be ignored. “I am not a political person by nature,” she said. But she found her themes in the injustices and cruelties of her country’s policies of racial division, leaving no quarter of South African society unexplored.

And once the Afrikaner nationalists came to power in 1948, the scaffolds of the apartheid system began to rise around her and could not be ignored.
