Nadine Gordimer with Steve Wasserman, Conversation, 3 December 2003 – Video

Recorded at the Lensic Theater in Santa Fe, New Mexico on December 3, 2003.

Nadine Gordimer was born in and has lived all her life in South Africa, drawing inspiration for her novels and short stories from what she calls “the tragedy of [her] own particular place.” Gordimer studies master-servant relations characteristic of South African life, spiritual and sexual paranoias of colonialism, and the shallow liberalism of the privileged white class. Gordimer’s novel The Pickup, published in 2002, depicts the challenges of a relationship between the daughter of a wealthy investment banker and an Arab auto mechanic who is an illegal immigrant. A winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1991, she has received numerous honorary degrees from universities all over the world.
