"Remorselessly human, it is also funny and touching: Coetzee the artist remains the complete novelist." Irish Times
"Coetzee is a unique voice; no novelist explores the ideas and the power of literature and the sense of displacement so boldly. Slow Man will add to his immense reputation" Independent on Sunday
J.M. Coetzee’s work includes Foe, Life & Times of Michael K, Boyhood, Youth, Disgrace, Summertime and the Jesus Trilogy. He was the first author to win the Booker Prize twice and was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2003.
