Farewell Nadine

imageToday we bid farewell to another South African of incredible stature – Nadine Gordimer.

We mourn the passing one of our literary giants today, with the death at 90 of Nadine Gordimer, a Nobel laureate who remained politically and intellectually courageous until the end.

Nadine Gordimer won the Booker Prize in 1974 for The Conservationist, a novel about a white South African who loses everything, and the Nobel Prize in 1991, when apartheid was in its death throes.

Thank you for your wonderful literature, your courage and principals and for always  remaining true.
