Beethoven Was One-sixteenth Black

by Nadine Gordimer - £8.99  Bloomsbury Publishing PLC (2008)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780747593843 | ISBN 10: 0747593841

The latest collection of stories from Nobel and Man Booker Prize-winning novelist Nadine Gordimer.
 
This rich story collection will be a reminder to Nadine Gordimerís countless admirers, and a taster for the uninitiated, of her enduring imaginative power.

A woman gauges the state of her marriage by the tone of her husbandís cello; a wife reads her husbandís mood by the scent in the nape of his neck; a newly emigrated couple are divided by visual obsession, he with his native Budapest, she with South African suburbia.

With consummate artistry, Gordimer illustrates the show downs, standoffs and highlights of human intimacy while penetrating the nuances of immigration, national identity and race.
