Life Times A stunning selection of the best short fiction from the recipient of the Nobel Prize in LiteratureThis collection of Nadine Gordimer s short fiction demonstrates her rich use of language and her unsparing vision of politics, sexuality, and race Whether writing about lovers, parents and children, or married couples, Gordimer maps out the terrain of human relationships with razor sharp psychological insight and a stunning lack of sentimentality The selection, which spans the course of Gordimer s career to date, presents the range of her storytelling abilities and her brilliant insight into human nature From such epics as Friday s Footprint and Something Out There to her shorter, experimental stories, Gordimer s work is unfailingly nuanced and complex Time and again, it forces us to examine how our stated intentions come into conflict with our unspoken desires.This definitive volume, which includes four new stories from the Nobel laureate, is a testament to the power, force, and ongoing relevance of Gordimer s vision.

  1. This collection seems like a great way to get introduced to Gordimer s work It contains almost 40 short stories from throughout her career, all of them remarkably competent, some of them brilliant Aside from her consistency, the thing that impressed me most about Gordimer s work was her absolute refusal to simplify or to accept easy answers to moral questions Favorite stories include Friday s Footprint, Livingstone s Companions, Town and Country Lovers, The Ultimate Safari, and the n This collection seems like a great way to get introduced to Gordimer s work It contains almost 40 short stories from throughout her career, all of them remarkably competent, some of them brilliant Aside from her consistency, the thing that impressed me most about Gordimer s work was her absolute refusal to simplify or to accept easy answers to...

  2. Fine collection of short stories by an authoress with a good command of the language and plot Occasionally, she fails to make sentences in favour of sound bytes A prosetry, a pathologicum, a practical plan I like stories, but not all of hers.

  4. Korte verhalen van Nobelprijs winnaar Literatuur Nadine Gordimer De meeste verhalen bevatten sociaal ge ngageerde thema s en uiteraard is de apartheid en discriminatie nooit ver weg Niet alle verhalen zijn even sterk, het gaat een beetje op en af Zo is er een verhaal over een vrouw die een zwarte jongen op een elitaire school helpt, hij is slim maar heeft onvoldoende geld voor zo n school Of de jongen wel gelukkig is, daar staat ze niet bij stil Het lijkt meer alsof haar geweten gesust is d Korte verhalen van Nobelprijs winnaar Literatuur Nadine Gordimer De meeste v...

  5. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I read July s People before starting on Life Times, and I found her writing esoteric and sometimes difficult to follow This is reflected in the stories in Life Times The writing is almost always detached and dispassionate the prose poetry is thick for long periods and is layered by complicated sentence constructions and the stories are heavily theme and plot based Characters are almost always relegated in relation to theme and plot, and this renders many of the stories impersonal and theref I read July s People before starting on Life Times, and I found her writing esoteric and sometimes difficult to follow This is reflected in the stories in Life Times The writing is almost always detached and dispassionate the prose poetr...

  6. I ve loved Nadine Gordimer s writing since I first read her novel The Pick Up years ago before I had any idea who Nadine Gordimer was and what an inspiring person she was.This book is a massive collection of her short stories, and they cover a wide range of topics, characters, time periods, locations, and issues I ve read in some reviews that people find Gordimer s style dry at times and boring, and I can understand how that might seem Her stories are not stories that one flies through in I ve loved Nadine Gordimer s writing since I first read her novel The Pick Up years ago before I had any idea who Nadine Gordimer was and what an inspiring person she was.This book is a massive collection of her short stories, and they cover a wide range of topics, characters, time periods, locations, and issues I ve read in some reviews that people find Gordimer s style dry at times and boring, and I can understand how that might seem Her stories are not stories that one flies through in one sitting I find her writing very precise and carefully constructed nothing wasteful or melodramatic or purely decorative She is masterful at evoking the dynamics of relationships between people without boxing them into an archet...

  7. Nadine Gordimer is a master storyteller It may not appeal to those with a need to be entertained but what makes it masterful is the way complex characters are displayed with subtlety and powerful issues are handled without preaching Once Upon A Time will change the way you look at the fairytale and racism xenophobia s destructive effects Each word used to describe the scenery is necessary part that holds this tapestry together Some of the chilling parts of a story like Beethoven Was One Sixt Nadine Gordimer is a master storyteller It may not appeal to those with a need to be entertained but what makes it masterful is the way complex characters are displayed with subtlety and powerful issues are handle...

  8. Life Times stories 1952 2007This has a few selected stories from a large number of her story collections.This is NOT CHEERFUL reading, for the most part Gordimer tells it like it is, and life is full of hardship and bad relations between people ON the other hand, you probably can t say Gordimer is pessimistic.It amazes me that she can portray convincingly such a very wide range of characters women, men, old, young, children, rich folks and poor folks, urban, rural, educated and uneducated, Life Times stories 1952 2007This has a few selected stories from a large number of her story collections.This is NOT CHEERFUL reading, for the most part Gordimer tells it like it is, and life is full of hardship and bad relations between people ON the other hand, you probably can t say Gordimer is pessimistic.It amazes me that she can ...

  9. I found this collection a bit of a long slog but now that I have finished it, I can look back on a worthwhile read I don t think reading Nadine Gordimer s work in this format was ideal the pages were filled with only a line or two before the next short story began I needliteral space in order to reflect on what I have just read and to be ready for the next.Many, if not most, of the stories, especially the early ones are pretty downbeat and cynical, at best bittersweet Perhaps writing I found this collection a bit of a long slog but now that I have finished it, I can look back on a worthwhile read I don t think reading Nadine Gordimer s work in this format was ideal the pages were filled with only a line or two before the next short story began I needliteral space in order to reflect on what I have just read and to be ready for the next.Many, if not most, of the stories, especially the early ones are pretty downbeat...
