October 2011: Nadine Gordimer, Monthly Author Reads (lokakuuta 2011)

Nadine Gordimer is a master storyteller. It may not appeal to those with a need to be entertained but what makes it masterful is the way complex characters are displayed with subtlety and powerful issues are handled without preaching. Once Upon A Time will change the way you look at the fairytale and racism/xenophobia's destructive effects. Each word used to describe the scenery is necessary part that holds this tapestry together. Some of the chilling parts of a story like Beethoven Was One Sixteenth Black come in a spare poetic lines that seem to be normal thoughts on the surface until one goes back to see the layers they open, "Caches of old papers are graves . . ."

The writing style was a bit hard to understand at first - there are no indications of who is talking, you have to rely on context and content - but once I got used to it the style really helped bring immediacy to the story. Not sure that I understood the ending, but that doesn't take away from the book in any way.

This was a challenging book for me to read because of the style and verbal exchanges. There was no indication as to whom was speaking. The shift of power after the Smales are taken by July to his village is evident and profound, especially in that this book was written before Apartheid was finished. I did find that the introspection by the white couple was boring and completely off the mark - they were proud of their liberalism but had difficulty in seeing how their responses to their situation perpetuated animosity between the races.… (lisätietoja)
