This review is from: Summertime (Hardcover)
Much as I enjoyed this new autobiography, just as I loved 'Boy' and 'Youth', with this one I found the going tough by the chapter on Martin and the academic colleague and if you're not Coetzee fan, I could see you not liking this at all. A review in the Singapore Times condemned it wholeheartedly. It's extremely clever the way it gets under Coetzee's skin through interviews with people I'm convinced are real. That says a lot.
