Nadine Gordimer

South African writer, political activist and recipient of the 1991 Nobel Prize in Literature
Where do whites fit in the New Africa? Nowhere, I'm inclined to sayand I do believe that it is true that even the gentlest and most westernised Africans would like the emotional idea of the continent entirely without the complication of the presence of the white man for a generation or two. But nowhere, as an answer for us whites, is in the same category as remarks like What's the use of living? in the face of the threat of atomic radiation. We are living; we are in Africa.More Nadine Gordimer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
