Beethoven Was One-Sixteenth Black

Author: Nadine, Gordimer Set In . . .
 Africa, South Africa
Genre: Short Stories
Time Frame: 2000s
Published: 2007
Description: Always exploring the boundaries of race, identity, politics, memory, sexuality, and love with fearless insight and deep compassion, Nadine Gordimer has produced another masterpiece of short fiction. From a former anti-apartheid activist’s search for his own racial identity by tracing his great-grandfather’s part in South Africa’s diamond industry to a parrot that scandalizes people with repetitions of their quarrels and clandestine love-talk, this new collection of stories eloquently probes how people are never free from their past nor spared from loss.
