Description

A Fine copy of the first edition, first printing (spine ends gently pushed), in a Fine dust jacket; Gordimer's novel about a secondary school student who changes her name, joins the ANC, and marries one of its members. After relocating to Tanzania, she ultimately returns to South Africa as the wife of an African nation's President to attend the installation of South Africa's first black President. Nadine Gordimer won the 1991 Nobel Prize in Literature for being an author "who through her magnificent epic writing has & in the words of Alfred Nobel & been of very great benefit to humanity", making her the first South African, and seventh woman, to win the Prize. Nobel officials cite "A Sport of Nature" as being one of Gordimer's 10 Principal Novels and Per Wästberg, a member of the Swedish Academy described the work as "Gordimer's most hazardous undertaking. Like A Guest of Honour, it is novel as history". A Fine copy of one Nadine Gordimer's most notable works. A Fine copy.
