In Burger’s Daughter, Nobel Prize winner Nadine Gordimer uses a coming-of-age story to explore the complicated political circumstances of modern South Africa.

Rosa Burger is a white South African woman in her early twenties trying to uphold the political heritage handed on by her martyred parents while carving out a sense of self. Cast in the revolutionary mold, the only survivor of a family known for their anti-apartheid beliefs and practices, Rosa is under the watch of the government and the rebels alike, all of whom seem to have great expectations of her. A quiet, private person, Rosa herself is more concerned with introspection and with trying to understand her identity and her political climate in her own way. Through her journey, the journey of a nation comes to light.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This is a novel of social and political import which is also an intensely subjective prose poem, mesmerizing in the subtle cadences of its language.”

    Joyce Carol Oates

  • “Gordimer’s most political and most moving novel, going to the heart of the racial conflict in South Africa. But it does not deal publicly with riots, tortures, or crusades: Its politics come out of its characters, as part of the wholeness of lives that cannot evade them.”

    New York Times

  • “A riveting history of South Africa and a penetrating portrait of a courageous woman.”

    New Yorker

  • “Nadine Gordimer is a great writer…Turgenev she most brings to mind.”

    New York Review of Books

  • “Faultless novelistic art…only equaled in our time by such masters as Graham Greene and V. S. Naipaul.”

    Francine du Plessix Gray, Pulitzer Prize–nominated writer and literary critic

  • “Take time to read this novel…Nobel Prize–winner Nadine Gordimer takes a situation most read about in newspapers and makes it real, creating a memorable story of coming to terms with circumstances over which we have little control, yet which directly affect our lives.”

    Holly Smith, 500 Great Books by Women
