The master at play,
This review is from: Diary of a Bad Year (Paperback)
John Maxwell Coetzee seems to have moved beyond merely writing great novels, but onwards to work with the artform of writing. In this one not only is there marvellously controversial content, but also JMC challenges the reader almost subversively about they way they choose to read the book. To start with I rebelled and decided to read it my own way, until I realised I was probably doing just what he intended.
Well done Mr Coetzee, I enjoyed both the novel and the contest.
