Product Details


“Coetzee’s many strong and provocative essays, along with the clarity of his writing and the literary biographies he weaves into his analyses, make this in general a worthwhile work of literary criticism.”—Publishers Weekly

“Nobel and Booker Prize winner Coetzee (The Schooldays of Jesus, 2017, etc.) offers another collection of reflective and erudite essays on a variety of poets and novelists . . . Thought-provoking essays that offer more than mere opinion, as the author plumbs the writers’ philosophical and psychological depths.”—Kirkus Review

Praise for J. M. Coetzee

‟Coetzee is that rare breed, an academic who is also a world-class writer, and this latest collection is informed as much by the novelist’s keen eye as it is by the theorists obsessions.” —The New York Times Book Review

‟[Coetzee] is probably the only Nobel laureate to write so extensively about his peers . . . and he is happily unrestrained by mere collegiality.” —New York Sun
