A collection of 23 biographical and autobiographical essays written from the 1950s to 1985 on writing, censorship and South African politics. A South African native, Nobel Prize Laureate Gordimer provides an intimate picture of that country and the changing life under apartheid. She believes that racial prejudice is abhorrent, especially when sanctioned by the government, and that it is the writer's job to speak the truth.
