I am just trying to remember what of Coetzee I have actually read and I'm struggling. I have seen the movie of Disgrace, though which means nothing in the face of a writer who I have no doubt is one of the best writing in English today. I consider them ahead of me, and tantalising.
This one won the Booker in 1999 (as evidenced by the graceless sticker plonked right in the middle of the cover).
