The canonical academic status as well as the immense commercial success of
a small selection of ‚white‘ South African authors such as Nadine
Gordimer, André Brink and especially the latest Nobel Prize winner
J. M. Coetzee raise many questions. How did their images as ‚representative‘
South African writers influence national and international understandings
of the country South Africa? And how does the publishing media contribute
to the construction and communication of South Africa as a cultural
product? How do readers of different social and geographical locations
react to the ways multi-national publishing companies promote their
international best-sellers?
