Nadine Gordimer, a Nobel Prize-winning author famed for her portrayals of South Africa under apartheid, died Sunday, her family said in a statement. She was 90.
Gordimer was considered a modern literary genius, an important chronicler of the injustices of racial segregation. Three of her books were banned during apartheid.
"They showed how people were living here," Gordimer said in an NPR interview last year. “They showed what influences were shaping our lives. And they showed the many different reactions to it among different people here.”

"Queríamos poder llevar la copa a Argentina, pero hemos representado al país de la mejor manera, hemos dado todo. Lo lamentamos por nosotros, por la gente que vino, por la gente que está en Argentina. Esta era nuestra oportunidad, el fútbol tiene esto y habrá que levantar la cabeza y soportar este dolor."
