Nadine Gordimer talks about her life and writing. Gordimer won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1991, and is widely recognized for her activism and for confronting moral and political issues in her writing. She published her first novel in 1953, and has since gone on to publish short stories, plays and criticism in over 40 books, including The Conservationist, which won the Booker Prize in 1974. This is the first of a series of events with Index on Censorship, which focuses on the continuing importance of free expression across the world. Gordimer's latest novel, published to coincide with this event, is No Time Like the Present.
