Random House, Inc.
In this collection of new stories, Nadine Gordimer crosses the frontiers of politics, memory, sexuality, and love with the fearless insight that is the hallmark of her writing. A middle-aged, anti-apartheid academic embarks on a search for his own racial identity, a loving friend dreams of a lunch in which Susan Sontag and Edward Said appear, and a parrot who scandalously confronts his listeners with the reproduction of eavesdropped quarrels and clandestine love-talk.
