In a circumstance that would fit in J.M. Coetzee's novel Disgrace, noted South African writer Nadine Gordimer was robbed and assaulted in her Johannesburg home last week. Gordimer and others have recently remarked on the relative unease in South Africa, and some have voted with their feet.
Gordimer herself says, "my own view is complex and I really prefer to write them down. There are things that are remarkably good and things that are very, very worrying."
