Disgrace
Disgrace
by J M Coetzee
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars An exploration of guilt and innocence, 1 Nov. 2013

This review is from: Disgrace (Paperback)
This is a demanding book, requiring effort from the reader not to snatch at easy interpretations. It is full of interesting characters and contradictory situations. Some at first saw it as blaming blacks in South Africa for violence in the aftermath of apartheid, but it is far from that. Apartheid is the prime disgrace; although the central character's unrepentant affair with his student and its consequences for his life and career is the more obvious disgrace. His punishment and the expiation for his transgression fit into a much wider picture.

Very stimulating - careful reading repays the effort and helps with the techniques. I'm still finding new points after all these months.

Good illustrations and lots of examples.

Many thanks to Maggie Grey for the generosity with which she has shared such a richness of ideas; almost every paragraph gives a new hint or tip. I particularly liked the way she has structured the book - raising the surface ever higher until we come to fully three-dimensional constructions. The instructions are clear and sufficiently detailed, and the photographed examples gorgeous. As I'm working outside the UK, it is very helpful to have a description of materials not just their trade name. The index could perhaps be a little more comprehensive, but this is a minor quibble. I recommend this book whole-heartedly to anyone interested in textile arts.
