The essays in this book examines such topics as the autobiographical basis of Nadine Gordimer's fiction, her relationship to feminism, the place of the white woman in black Africa, the ambiguity of revolutionary politics, her ambivalent relationship to Judaism, her use of irony, the symbolism of landscape, and the ways in which she has revised recurring topics throughout her career as a writer. There are essays on "The Conservationist", "Burger's Daughter", "July's People", "A Sport of Nature" and "My Son's Story" and the later short fiction. The editor provides an introduction to the reasons why Gordimer's work has changed so radically.
