Product description

Review

"A strong and memorable novel" (Guardian)

"It strikes deep inside the heart...The story is clean, clear, straight, the work of a mature imagination at full power...here is a book that will be celebrated for a long time" (Mail on Sunday)

"This is a trule astonishing novel... I finished Life & Times of Michael K in a state of elation, for all the misery and suffering it contains. I cannot recommend it highly enough" (Evening Standard)

"Beautifully written in a strong, plain, unpretentious style...distinguished by grim humour and powerful understatement" (Sunday Express)

"The quality of Coetzee's writing lies in his inner vision: dark, passionately compassionate, concerned with the nature of man" (Financial Times)

About the Author

J.M. Coetzee’s work includes Waiting for the Barbarians, Life & Times of Michael K, Boyhood, Youth, Disgrace, Summertime, The Childhood of Jesus and, most recently, The Schooldays of Jesus. He was the first author to win the Booker Prize twice and was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2003.
