Get A Life
Paul Bannerman, an ecologist in Africa, believes he controls the trajectory of his life, with the markers of vocation and marriage. But when he's diagnosed with thyroid cancer and prescribed treatment that makes him radioactive and for a period a danger to others, he questions, as Auden wrote, 'What authority gives / Existence its surprise.'
"Gordimer has undoubtedly become one of the World's Great Writers... her rootedness in a political time, place and faith has never dimmed her complex gifts as an artist."
