Cornell University edition. 2001 Trade Paperback. We have more books available by this author!. 270 pp. The Pickup (2001) is a novel by South African writer Nadine Gordimer, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1991, and considers the issues of displacement, alienation, and immigration; class and economic power; religious faith; and the ability of people to see, and love, across these divides. It tells the story of a couple: Julie Summers, a white woman from a financially secure family, and Abdu, an illegal Arab immigrant in South Africa. After Abdu's visa is refused, the couple returns to his un-named homeland, where she is the alien. Her experiences and growth as an alien in another culture form the heart of the work.
