Journal Title:International Journal of Communication Research
Abstract


Published in 1998, The House Gun is Gordimers testimony of South African realities four years after the first democratic elections took place. It has been tagged in many ways; as a courtroom thriller (The Times), a triumph () a passionate, multi-layered story of awakening (Yorkshire Post), an engrossing and deeply considered novel about violence and its consequences (Esquire), a work of exceptional caliber (Sunday Times), or as a pro-tolerance novel (Harpers and Queen). At its core, the novel is an attempt to lay bare and account for some of the problems South Africa was facing at that particular moment in time. By taking The House Gun as the point of reference, this papers aims at investigating the changes occurring in the South African social fabric and the new relationships established between blacks and whites.
