Description - Beethoven Was One-Sixteenth Black by Nadine Gordimer

Always exploring the boundaries of race, identity, politics, memory, sexuality, and love with fearless insight and deep compassion, Nadine Gordimer has produced another masterpiece of short fiction. From a former anti-apartheid activist s search for his own racial identity by tracing his great-grandfather s part in South Africa s diamond industry to a parrot that scandalizes people with repetitions of their quarrels and clandestine love-talk, this new collection of stories eloquently probes how people are never free from their past nor spared from loss."

Buy Beethoven Was One-Sixteenth Black by Nadine Gordimer from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
