Friday Feature: The Pickup by Nadine Gordimer (2001)

pickupA review in salon.com explains why The Pickup by Nobel Laureate Nadine Gordimer speaks directly to our work.

The Pickup enables a comparison between the refugee experience of an undocumented asylum seeker and the wife who returns with him to his unnamed Arabic-speaking country of origin.

If you find it difficult to imagine how you would thrive – or not – in a similar situation to those faced every day by our clients, reading this novel is the remedy.

(On occasional Fridays, we highlight one entertainment option related to our clients or some aspect of our work to help you celebrate the weekend and possibly recommend to employers and other community supporters in the following week.)
