Telling Times brings together for the first time all of Nadine Gordimer's major essays from the early 1950s to the present. Beginning with her stand against apartheid in the 1950s and continuing with her fight against HIV/AIDS in Africa today, this collection documents some of the most daunting moral issues in the twentieth century and shows how Gordimer was at the centre of these great debates. Also included are many of Gordimer's most important critical essays on literature and writers from across the literary spectrum. In the tradition of Gore Vidal's United States and Clive James's Cultural Amnesia, this is a major volume that bears witness to Gordimer's moral and political engagement in many of the most crucial issues of the last half-century.

"[A] landmark collection... the clarity of her voice and the deep impress of her observations make for high-voltage reading... at once personal and magisterial."
