No Time Like the Present, by Nadine Gordimer

In No Time Like the Present, her fifth novel since winning the 1991 Nobel Prize in Literature, Nadine Gordimer takes a scathing look at modern South Africa. Apartheid rule is long gone, but in its place are political corruption, random acts of street violence, and an AIDS epidemic that has killed more than a million citizens. Heavy going at times, but this is a powerful and important book. My full review appears on bookreporter.com.
