White Women Writing White is a provocative analysis of the works of selected South African women writers, examining the ways in which each deals with concepts of white identity. Drawing on a range of source materials, from popular novels (Pamela Jooste and Susan Mann) and magazine columns (Marianne Thamm) to major works such as A Change of Tongue (Antjie Krog) and short stories by Nadine Gordimer and Marlene van Niekerk, this book seeks to tease out the hidden meanings and assumptions in the ways these writers have portrayed the white South African experience. White Women Writing White is an important addition to the internationally growing field of whiteness studies, which views white identity as a social construct.
