"Gordimer trains her keen eye on Steve and Jabulile, an interracial couple living in a newly, tentatively, free South Africa. They have a daughter, Sindiswa; they move to the suburbs; Steve becomes a lecturer at a university; Jabulile trains to become a lawyer; there is another child, a boy this time. There is nothing so extraordinary about their lives, and yet, in telling their story and the stories of their friends and families, Gordimer manages to capture the tortured, fragmented essence of a nation struggling to define itself post-apartheid."--Publisher's website.… (mehr)

Sudafrica del dopo apartheid. Jabu e Steve hanno vissuto in prima linea la Lotta al vecchio regime, pagando con il carcere e la clandestinità un impegno politico che è un imperativo morale. Lei nera, zulu, cresciuta in un villaggio tribale, lui bianco di famiglia benestante, Jabu e Steve abbracciano la differenza e si sposano quando ancora i matrimoni misti sono illegali.
Ma come riconciliare l’esperienza di una normalità prima impensabile con la realtà di una giovanissima democrazia afflitta da povertà, violenza, tensioni sociali e già inquinata da corruzione, scandali e giochi di potere? Accettare la disillusione degli ideali e scegliere l’emigrazione è davvero l’unica soluzione percorribile? E in questa nuova realtà, come riconciliare le scelte private con l’impegno politico? In Ora o mai più, il premio Nobel sudafricano dimostra ancora una volta di essere una narratrice magistrale, all’apice delle sue capacità.

Il Nobel attributo a Nadine Gordimer nel 2001 non è frutto del caso; e questo libro è testimonianza; stile denso e vivo, quello dell’autrice sudafricana, parole non a caso, che scandiscono fatti e pensieri; quello del Sudafrica del dopo Apartheid, il sogno di Mandela è diventato realtà, ma la realtà non è quella che sognava Mandela e chi ha combattuto con lui. La Gordimer ha scritto questo libro a novantuno anni, praticamente un testamento della sua opera letteraria. E un lungo omaggio al suo paese. E così partendo dalla vita quotidiana di una coppia mista, Jabu e Steve, la Gordimer entra nel cuore di un paese, della sua gente e dei problemi dell’uno, e degli altri. Non è un libro scorrevole, le storie si intersecano, si incrociano, in una sorta di gioco di passo e contrappasso tra aspettative di una comunità e la dura realtà delle vite vissute. Tutto rimane con un livello quasi maniacale di quotidianità, eccezionale è stata l’impresa di rendere per legge il bianco uguale al nero. Ma la legge non è la realtà; e la realtà richiede pazienza, quella che il lettore deve tributare per apprezzare il libro della Gordimer. ( )

A disappointing final novel from a Nobel-winner, which feels overlong and difficult to get through. The book follows an interracial couple in post-apartheid South Africa, but there is no driving narrative to pull you through the pages – just a kind of daily notation of ongoing events: strikes, corruption charges, elections, bourgeoisification, the quotidian frustrations of a newly-free society. It feels a bit like Nadine Gordimer just looked through the headlines every morning and jotted down another couple of pages of the novel – especially near the end, where she seems to be settling in to tackle Zuma's presidency on a gruelling day-by-day basis.

The treacly pace is compounded by a prose style of impressionistic flightiness, comma-splicing thoughts together, dropping conjunctions and quotation marks, and generally darting around in a disconcerting way. One hunts in vain for a finite verb, or scratches one's head over statements like this:

What the reasons could be, and these were with them in the times of silence which keep the balance of living together in the tenderly joyous interpenetration of love-making, and the need to be a self.

Weirdly, the part that stuck out the most had nothing to do with politics – it was when the husband had an affair during a trip to London. Something that in the hands of a lesser author would have been made to recur as a plot point, but which here is beautifully built-up and described, and then never referred to again. It's strangely beautiful.

Throughout the book, though, there is a frustrating sense that it can't be comfortably flung aside – there are real insights here buried among the blocks of text, and the general subject of how racial inequality has been sublimated into a class struggle, in South Africa's ‘aftermath of peace’, is always of interest. This book, unfortunately, does not approach it in the most compelling way. ( )

Mejor hoy que mañana narra el devenir de una familia mixta de un barrio de Johannesburgo desde los años noventa hasta finales del 2009. Terminado el apartheid, la mayoría de ciudadanos no han visto cumplidas sus esperanzas de un mundo mejor: la democracia y la abolición de la segregación racial no han hecho brotar lo mejor de cada persona, sino que, por el contrario, la corrupción y las desigualdades sociales se han convertido en el nuevo caballo de batalla del país. Sin embargo, la esperanza y la seguridad de que puede construirse un mundo mejor se abren siempre paso entre las líneas de esta novela, la más reciente de una escritora excepcional.

Every once in a while, you begin to read a book and suddenly realize you are experiencing greatness. This is such a book.
hinzugefügt von Widsith | bearbeitenThe Washington Times, John Greenya (Jun 29, 2012)
 
The novel, packed with intense political conversations, sometimes feels didactic, and leaves the reader longing for more of the main characters.…In the principled world of Gordimer’s former revolutionaries, a new life elsewhere is both a promise and the biggest infidelity.
hinzugefügt von Widsith | bearbeitenThe New Yorker (Apr 16, 2012)
 
Gordimer is a dedicated cicerone for the outsider wishing to explore, ready to show off every cultural nuance, hurtle through every social or political crosscurrent.…Is her mission, though, to explain or merely present? Sometimes it is hard for the reader to tell.
hinzugefügt von Widsith | bearbeitenThe LA Times, Martin Rubin (Apr 8, 2012)
 
Gordimer has given us so much to be thankful for that it may seem trivial to find fault with her prose style…As always, Gordimer excels at pulling back for a panoramic vista of a time and place, then narrowing her focus to remind us of the highly specific ways that politics shape the private lives of unique individuals, people not unlike ourselves.
hinzugefügt von Widsith | bearbeitenThe New York Times, Francine Prose (Apr 6, 2012)
 
Nadine Gordimer has not shied away from asking difficult questions, or from following the twists and turns of South Africa's transformation. It all makes for a complex book and a pained examination of the difficulties posed by a freedom that was won by imperfect human beings.

History has to do with manifestations of human freedom in connection with the external world, with time, and with dependence on causes.

Though the present remains
A dangerous place to live,
Cynicism would be a reckless luxury

Glengrove Place.  It isn't a glen and there isn't a grove.  It must have been named by a Scot or Englishman for features of a home left behind, when he made money in this city at more than five thousand feet and entered the property market enterprise.
