This review is from: Boyhood: Scenes from provincial life: A Memoir (Paperback)
This is one of the best books I have read on the subject of childhood. The narration of the young S. African boy is so compelling and emotional. Describing his fears, worries, his questions on life that no one gives an answer to. Coetzee has managed to sum up the (sometimes) terrifying process of growing up in one book.
Very real, very true and very touching. This book has melted my heart...
