Letter on Behalf of Nadine Gordimer to VQR Editor, 1951

ISSUE:  Fall 2012

VQR Editor Charlotte Kohler chose Nadine Gordimer’s short story “The Catch” for publication in the Summer 1951 issue. It was the young South African writer’s first letter of acceptance for publication in an American magazine. Some forty years later, she received the Nobel Prize. This letter from her agent is part of the Gordimer correspondence and manuscripts in the VQR archives in the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library at the University of Virginia.
