Black woman, white man: Jabu and Steve, the mixed-race couple Nadine Gordimer has built “No Time Like the Present” around, are trying to lead a normal life in the new South Africa. Insofar as anybody can.
Once they were armed revolutionaries in what they’ll forever refer to as the Struggle.
Now they’re raising two kids in a Johannesburg suburb alongside a few of their old comrades and a gay household in a deconsecrated church. It’s a left-leaning Eden: “a place, a home where color, sexual partnership, have nothing to do with the qualities of living in freedom.”
- No Time Like the Present by Nadine Gordimer
