Reminded me of Hemingway at his best...,
This review is from: Disgrace (Hardcover)
Disgrace is both simple and difficult. Simply beautiful in its careful but sparse prose. Difficult as it wrestles with harsh and shocking realities in 1990s South Africa. This is a relatively short novel, and yet it deals with big issues. Its narrative and meaning are clear yet complex, and arguably none of the characters are as clear cut as fictional characters tend to be, but rather they are the multi-faceted and ambiguous characters of our mixed-up real world. Disturbing at times, this is a wonderful piece of writing richly deserving of being a winner of the Booker Prize.
