This is the moving story of the unforgettable Rosa Burger, a young woman from South Africa cast in the mold of a revolutionary tradition. Rosa tries to uphold her heritage handed on by martyred parents while still carving out a sense of self. Although it is wholly of today, Burger's Daughter can be compared to those 19th century Russian classics that make a certain time and place come alive, and yet stand as universal celebrations of the human spirit. Nadine Gordimer, winner of the 1991 Nobel Prize in Literature, was born and lives in South Africa. Download and start listening now!

    " This is one of those books that I really appreciate now that I'm done but didn't really enjoy reading. It starts out very slow and if you like a lot of action, then it doesn't improve, but it gets more compelling, and it became more enjoyable to read once I got used to the narrative switching from first person to third person without much warning and the hard-to-follow tangents. And in discussing the book with my boo club, I was able to see it as a fascinating and beautifully written account of what it is like to be the daughter of a white anti-Apartheid activist who dies in prison--trying to find her own way but ultimately coming back to the world she was raised in. Burger's Daughter was published in 1979, so the discussions may seem dated now but offer interesting insights into politics of the time that prompted me to do more research on South African history. Nadine Gordimer won the Nobel Prize for Literature, and I will someday read more of her work. If you're willing to fight through this, this is a worthwhile piece of literature. "
