    Beethoven Was One kindle ñ eBookAnd Other Stories Å Nadine Gordimer Beethoven Was One, Sixteenth Black, And Other StoriesAn interesting small collection of short stories assembled around the general themes of loss mortality and acceptanceThe stories include a South African university professor contemplating his roots; the “autobiographical” reflections of a tape worm; an imagined lunch the author has at a Chinese restaurant with three intellectual friends who have passed away Edward Said Anthony Sampson and Susan Sontag; a grandson’s recollection of his recently departed grandmother who came to South Africa from privileged circumstances in Weimar Germany; the woman's contemplation of a small roach—named after Kafka’s Gregor—that is stuck in her laptop computer screen; a business traveler on a flight both like and unlike most of his trips; a young German woman who marries a South African moves to his country and realizes that she doesn’t understand the nuances of the mother tongue; a happily married widow who travels to meet the one person with whom her husband had a brief affai

    Beethoven Was One kindle ñ eBookAnd Other Stories Å Nadine Gordimer Beethoven Was One, Sixteenth Black, And Other StoriesFirst off Nadine Gordimer is an incredible writer One of the most amazing linguistic architects I have read in some time Her sentences if you can call them that traipse meander drive flit curve circle dead end and serpentine in so many different directions in only a line or two An amazing talent However this read was in some ways not an easy one for me I found myself struggling to keep up with her and her style of prose in some places I know I am reading greatness I just may not understand it all of the time A read through her work was like a stroll through the Met I appreciated and enjoyed each and every story but I am not sure I got everything out of them that I was supposed to or rather what the author intendedI enjoy being challenged my intellect my views my feelings my apathy but I am not sure I did Gordimer justice I am not sure I was worthy of her words An odd feeling at the end of a book of short stories no doubt but one I imagine will be replicated as I move on to
