Nadine Gordimer

‘I correct the spelling because I’m a lawyer and I’m accustomed to precision in language; in legal documents the displacement of a comma can change the intention expressed in a sentence and lead to new litigation.’

Nadine Gordimer

Nadine Gordimer (1923-2014) was awarded the 1991 Nobel Prize for Literature. Her works include Get a Life, No Time Like the Present, and a collection of short stories, Beethoven Was One Sixteenth Black.
