Product Description

Review

"Coetzee's vision goes to the nerve center of being" (Nadine Gordimer)

"Its unflinching sense of loss, its claustrophobic acknowledgement of the unwilling interdependence of master and slave, and its subtle prose-style, make it an extraordinary achievement" (Guardian)

"His writing gives off whiffs of Conrad, of Nabokov, of Golding, of the Paul Theroux of The Mosquito Coast. But he is none of these, he is a harsh, compelling voice" (Sunday Times)

"Intense, clear and powerful. The promise, so brilliantly fulfilled in his later work, is clear in this earliest novel" (Daily Telegraph)

Book Description

The lives of a Boer frontiersman and a specialist in psychological warfare living two centuries apart are brought together as extremes of power politics in this brutal, ambitious debut novel from the Booker and Nobel Prize-winning J. M. Coetzee.

About the Author

J. M. Coetzee’s work includes Waiting for the Barbarians, Life & Times of Michael K, Boyhood, Youth, Disgrace, Summertime and The Childhood of Jesus. He was the first author to win the Booker Prize twice and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2003.
