Reviews

"[A] sterling collection of short stories, 38 in all, by the South African novelist . . . A welcome collection by a master of English prose--lucid and precisely written, if often bringing news only of disappointment, fear and loss." --Kirkus Reviews"Life Times indeed . . . This grand gathering . . . showcases Gordimer's gift for concentrating the many forms of suffering humankind instigates and endures within calamitous and transforming moments. Her cutting stories dramatize with fluent specificity the evolution of liberation in South Africa. But they are also headline-fresh and timelessly universal as Gordimer, skeptical and compassionate, reveals how intimately entwined politics and private lives are, and how there is no such thing as apartness." --Donna Seaman, Booklist"Gordimer's characters and situations are complex and multifaceted, and it is a testament to her literary skill that she can pack so much depth of meaning into each story. Highly recommended; these powerful and serious stories span the career to date of a critically acclaimed, prize-winning author." --Sarah Conrad Weisman, Corning Community College, New York, Library Journal -[A] sterling collection of short stories, 38 in all, by the South African novelist . . .
