J.M Coetzy proves once more his deep compassion and knowledge concerning the nature of Man . "In the heart of the country" reminds one how a human being deprived of love in childhood can destroy their social & mind structure in later life. Magda's craving for the love of her father denied to her leads her to madness and revenge. When you have read one of Coetzee's novel, you want to read them all, then you will know that all you want to know about J.M C as he only reveals himself in his novels. J.M C , THE MAN is a sensitive,noble hearted and exceptional man concerneded with the suffering of all living beings.
